Living at UMBS

Anyone who has spent time here, says the community is a big part of what makes the Biological Station so special. 

This section contains information to help your stay at the Station be a positive one. Our Guide to Living at the Station addresses many common questions on everything from meal times to laundry facilities. The Community Living Standards outline how we balance individual rights with the interests of the community as a whole.

Everyone who plans to live at the Station (except students taking classes and REU participants) must fill out a housing application. We advise you to do this at the earliest opportunity. Camp fills up at the height of the season. We assign housing on a first-come, first-served basis.
