Housing and Meals

Living on the Biological Station grounds is required to allow full-time interaction between students, instructors and the world-class research program here. A number of housing/meal plans are available to meet student course needs.

There are a total of 40 cabins; 30 are double occupancy (12' x 14') and 9 are larger and accommodate four people (12' x 24'). The larger cabins are reserved for faculty or students with families. All cabins are heated and furnished with lights, electricity, two twin-size beds, chairs, desks, closets, and wireless access. Rest room and shower facilities are located near the cabins. A dormitory with 10 rooms is available in single or double occupancy. Reservations are accepted on a first to register basis for qualified applicants. Cabins are usually the housing of choice. Let us know on your application if you have a roommate preference (i.e., particular person, nonsmoker, etc.). Housing Photo Tour

Housing student family members at FLBS is contingent upon available space. All students, staff, family members and guests staying at the Biological Station are required to pay full housing and meals rates.

Note: All housing assignments are final.
