Welcome to the Housing Office of the Conferences, Housing and Dining Department.
We maintain a variety of comfortable, attractive, and affordable housing units open all year to our many visitors and guests.
In the Summer months, we assign housing for students, faculty, and scientists involved in our summer research and educational programs. The application and assignment processes begin on January 1 each year.
The Summer Housing deadline for receiving applications is March 1 for processing by category. Submission of an application does not guarantee housing. There are more requests for housing than we can accommodate . We prioritize housing by category of applicants. Students accepted to MBL courses do not submit housing applications and are guaranteed housing. Otherwise we do our best to accommodate as many people as possible.
During the rest of the year, the Conference Office arranges scientific meetings, conferences, group and departmental retreats in scenic Woods Hole. Contact the Conference Office, 508-289-7214, for information on group housing.
Individuals visiting the MBL and wishing to reserve MBL housing, throughout the year, must first complete an application, other than students participating in MBL courses. MBL housing is not available without a registration and housing application. We accept applications all year. See our Applications page. There is also listing of local rental options and local hotels for your reference.
We will be happy to answer your questions and direct you to the appropriate application. Please contact the Housing Office at 508-289-7431 or 508-289-7213, email@example.com.
