The Carleton University Research Office (CURO) is the department within the Office of the Vice-President (Research and International) that supports research activity in the Carleton University faculties.

CURO personnel help faculty members to prepare grant proposals, deal with contracts, and to prepare reports and budgets. CURO also acts as a bridge between faculty members and the university departments and services that support varied research programs, such as Facilities Management and Planning and Research Accounting.
