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.


Currently moving

Students are actively moving out of and into these spots. Both the previous occupant and the next occupant are indicated.

Students in 1420 are being kicked out by May 26, and students in 1414 are being kicked out by June 15th. Note: these are the days these offices cease to exist, and moves facilitated by hired movers may have to occur before then.


Open spots

Spots can be claimed here. Once you finish moving, please remove the spot from this list and inform Millie.

- Jemma would like to move to 1333

- Tiffany would like Stephanie's desk in 1410

- Andrea would take Kirsten's spot in 1410 or a desk in 1333 (if available)

- Emily wants the open space in 1333 before she is kicked out of 1420 on May 26th.

- Sarah will take Maria's spot in 1333 when she graduates
