During the standard housing months (April 1st- November 30th) demand is high and housing is limited, only students participating in MBL courses are guaranteed housing each summer. All other housing assignments are made on a space-available basis according to a user category established by the MBL and in the order in which they are received. For Standard (Summer) Housing the category deadline date for applications is March 1.

MBL Society members may reserve MBL housing for one week annually as availability permits. Due to high demand from course and research activities, housing is generally not available to Society Members between June 15 and August 15. Society Members may also sponsor an MBL visitor. Contact the housing office directly for details.

Housing applications from individuals with overdue MBL accounts will not be considered until the bill is paid in full.
