This is the main page for planning and organizing graduate student seating. Seating is chosen based on a seniority system with the most senior graduate students getting first pick of seating that opens. Graduate students in the same echelon must flip a coin to determine who gets the seating (or in the case of n>2 must find some other appropriate randomization system). Students whose advisors are at the museum may be asked to relinquish their spots after they finish coursework and TA responsibilities.

A list of students and their seniority can be found in the * Graduate student directory.

List of offices

Grad student spots will generally have two desks, because they will be around for 5-6 years. Postbac and RA spots are more "temporary", because they are usually around for only 1-2 years. These spots will generally have a single desk.
