Full-board consists of three meals a day, Monday through Saturday, plus brunch and dinner on Sunday (20 meals per week). Dining Hall meal service is available (except for a few days) during Spring, Summer, and Autumn Quarters.

Meals for students will be served starting with dinner (served 5:00-5:30 on Sunday, 6:00-6:30 on all other days) on the evening before classes begin.

In spring and autumn quarters the final meal served will be breakfast (served 7:45 - 8:15 a.m.) on the Saturday following the final Friday of the term.

In the summer sessions, the final meal will be lunch on the final Friday of the term (served 12:15-12:45 pm).

Vegetarian options are available; students should notify FHL Dining Hall staff of their preference for vegetarian meals at the first meal they attend.

DORM ROOMS: Students are housed in double-occupancy dorm rooms. Single occupancy dorm rooms are generally reserved for Teaching Assistants and Research Assistants. Housing in an FHL double-occupancy dorm room will be automatically assigned by FHL staff for each accepted student; no action by the student is required.

Additional Costs for International Students

All non-U.S. students, including Canadians, accepted to a course or apprenticeship at FHL must request an "I-20 Form" (Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status) issued by the University of Washington International Outreach Program. The I-20 Form will be needed to apply for a U.S. student visa through a U.S. embassy or consulate in the student's home country, a process that may require a month or more. Canadians do not need to obtain a U.S. student visa but will be required to present their I-20 Form at the border when entering the U.S.

The University of Washington charges an Express Mailing fee of $40 (Express Mailing is recommended for most students). Instructions on how to apply for the I-20 Form will be provided by FHL staff to all international students following admission to an FHL course or apprenticeship. Once the I-20 Form has been issued by UW, all non-U.S. students, including Canadians, will also need to submit an application and $200 payment for the U.S. "SEVIS I-901" (Student and Exchange Visitor Information System). The following website provides additional information about SEVIS requirements: http:www.fmjfee.com/index.jhtml

Stacy Markman, FHL Student Coordinator, will communicate with all international students and will provide information about how to apply for an I-20 Form and a U.S. student visa (F-1) AFTER a student has been accepted for a course or apprenticeship at Friday Harbor Labs.
