* Students are encouraged to apply as early as possible. Applications will be accepted beyond the dates stated if space is available. To inquire, please email Stacy Markman, FHL Student Coordinator.


**ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE: Accepted students are expected to arrive at Friday Harbor Laboratories on San Juan Island after 3:00 p.m. the day before classes begin. Students are encouraged but not required to attend the first meal served, normally dinner the evening before classes begin. There are no other activities scheduled for students after dinner on the evening before classes begin; this first evening on campus is a great opportunity for students to unpack and settle into their dorms. All students should be prepared to attend the first morning's class.

If a student needs to arrive on campus earlier than 3:00 p.m. the day before classes begin, they may store belongings at FHL until dorm rooms are available. We discourage early arrivals but if a student needs to arrive early by a full day or more, they should contact FHL to ask if housing will be available. If not, they may need to stay in a hotel in Seattle, Anacortes (from where the ferry departs on the mainland) or in Friday Harbor. For information about FHL housing availability and costs, please email FHL Facilities Coordinator, Bernadette Holthuis at: fhlfac@uw.edu

At the end of the term students may be asked to move their belongings out of the dorm rooms before breakfast on the final day (luggage may be stored on campus until departure) if another group of students is scheduled to arrive.

Notes:
• Dorm rooms and huts are not equipped with cooking facilities and appliances such as microwaves, hot plates, refrigerators and space heaters are not allowed in dorms or huts.
• A refrigerator for student use is located behind Dorm B.
• A microwave for student use is available in the Dining Hall.

TRAVELING TO FRIDAY HARBOR: If flying into Seattle, please allow sufficient time for the last leg of your journey from Seattle to Friday Harbor (by commuter aircraft or float plane on Kenmore Air, or on the Washington State Ferries from Anacortes, a town located about two hours drive north of Seattle). You may need to schedule your arrival in Seattle in the morning or early afternoon the day before classes begin, or plan to spend the night in Seattle the day before you travel from Seattle to Friday Harbor. Again, please plan to arrive in Friday Harbor the afternoon or evening on the day before classes begin. For more information about traveling to Friday Harbor, visit the following website: Traveling to Friday Harbor

CLASSES ARE FULL-TIME: Courses and research apprenticeships require a full-time commitment, normally all day Monday-Friday in Spring and Autumn Quarters, and Monday-Friday plus Saturday mornings for summer courses. Please contact faculty to confirm the expected schedule for any particular course or apprenticeship. It is not possible to commute daily from Seattle, and traveling to Seattle for the weekend can be very time consuming (and expensive) and we do not encourage travel during the term, although an occasional weekend away may be possible.

***THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY: Thanksgiving Day is always celebrated in the U.S. on the fourth Thursday of November. During the Thanksgiving holiday week, classes will not be held Thursday or Friday. The FHL Dining Hall will be closed beginning after lunch on Wednesday (hot lunches will be served on Wednesday, but no dinner), Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning, reopening for dinner on Sunday at 5:00 p.m. If students choose to stay on the FHL campus over the four-day Thanksgiving holiday they will be given access to cooking facilities during these days.
