Lodging, conference hall, classrooms, bench space, offices/desks and cafeteria are scheduled on a first-come first-serve basis, with some preference given to long-term users of the site. Advance reservations are required. Summer months (May through September) have the greatest number of visitors and accommodations can become limited.
Overnight visitors and researchers are assigned to a specific bedroom in an apartment. Each apartment has a fully equipped kitchen, including pots, pans, dishes, utensils, refrigerators/freezers, microwave and coffee maker. Residents are expected to leave the apartment and kitchen area clean upon departure. All bedrooms have 2 twin beds and some are configured as a set of bunk beds. Residents should bring their own linens and towels. Linens (sheet, pillow case, blanket, towel, wash cloth) can be checked out (see fee schedule below).
