Sever Hall has a ramp entrance on the Quincy Street side that goes to the accessible door at the basement level. Accessible bathrooms are also on the basement level. An elevator goes to all floors, and the library has accessibility-enabled doors.


Grossman has laptops available for loan within the library. We also have laptops connected to the printer on the long table to the left as you enter the library. Printing is still free. There is one photocopier, which takes coins and cash; the cost is 10 cents per page. It can also scan, which requires a USB drive. Ask at the front desk if you have any questions.

Group Study Space

Students in need of group study space can meet in Room 310, located in the hallway outside of Grossman Library. The room accommodates multiple groups at one time. There are three whiteboards for student use, as well as the classroom blackboards. Room 310 is open for walk-in use without a reservation, but to assure a spot in the room, log in to DCE Online Services, and select the “Reserve Grossman Library Group Study Room” feature. Book up to 30 days in advance, for 1 or 2 hours, and up to 4 hours per week.

Career and Academic Resource Center (CARC) Reference Library 

The CARC Reference Library, located in Grossman Library, offers hundreds of books on careers, applications to graduate schools, study abroad programs, study skills, and thesis writing. These books may be used in the library, or scanned or photocopied, but they do not check-out of the library. The easiest way to search online for CARC books is to go to the Advanced Search in HOLLIS+. Enter your keywords, such as "GRE" or "resumes," and then choose "Grossman" from the drop-down menu of locations, and hit 'Search.'

Career and Academic Resource Center

The Career and Academic Resource Center (CARC) offers academic resource support and career services for Harvard Extension School registered students and admitted degree candidates. CARC is configured to offer an expanded, dynamic suite of resources to students around the globe - from our online webinars (live, or pre-recorded) to Skype call-in career counseling. For any questions or comments, please feel free to contact CARC by email.
