Welcome to MBL Housing


We maintain a variety of comfortable, attractive, and affordable housing units open all year to our many guests.

We assign housing for students, faculty, and scientists involved in our research and educational programs. The application and assignment processes begin on January 1 each year.

The Standard housing application (formerly summer housing) is expected to be completed by March 1 for processing by tier (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 or approved programs do not submit housing applications and are guaranteed housing.

Guests of the MBL who wish to reserve MBL housing, throughout the year, must first complete a registration form. MBL housing is not available without a completed registration and housing application. We accept applications all year.  There is also listing of local rental options and local hotels for your reference.

We will be happy to answer your questions. Please contact the Housing Office at 508-289-7668, housing@mbl.edu.
