Summer Program - 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.


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. All cabins are heated and furnished with lights, electricity, two twin-size beds, chairs, desks, closets. Rest room and shower facilities are located near the cabins. Housing is assigned on a first to apply basis for qualified applicants. Let us know on your application if you have a roommate preference (i.e., particular person, nonsmoker, etc.).

Note: All housing assignments are final.

FLBS strives to have positive, inclusive, and respectful communities for all students. We are committed to working individually and with discretion for students in transition to ensure their housing placement meets their needs. Please contact us at (406) 982-3301 or if you have any questions.


Meals are included in your lodging fees. All students will be served hot meals for breakfast and dinner. Lunches are packed by each student during breakfast and consist of a variety of options each day. Dinner is also provided for students attending the initial summer program orientation meeting on .

Weekend meals are available to those students continuing to attend courses the following week. Each meal consists of sacked-meals (an entrée and sides) selected by the student during the week.

Menus for field-trips and overnight excursions are planned for the entire group and are selected by the course instructor and kitchen staff to help complement the overnight camping experience.

Dietary preferences are taken into account for all pre-planned meals and menus.
