At the Marine Biological Laboratory 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. 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.

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. Students accepted to MBL courses or approved programs do not submit housing applications and are guaranteed housing.

We are happy to answer your questions.
