You have two options for housing while attending the NWDB conference.
Stay on Site
The registration form asks whether you prefer to stay on site and will charge you a housing fee commensurate with your status. The FHL greatly subsidizes the cost of student visits such that staying on site is extremely cost effective for both undergraduate and graduate students. The NWDB conference organizers have also scaled the fee structure such that postdoctoral fellows pay a reduced rate compared to the cost of housing in town. Faculty pay approximately the same rate as staying at the least expensive hotel in town. In all cases, SDB members pay reduced rates.
Stay in Town
The town of Friday Harbor is about 1 mile from the FHL conference site. The comfort and privacy of a hotel are balanced by the loss of proximity to meeting events. If you choose to stay in town, your meals at the meeting are still covered by the registration fee. Listed below are hotel options in the town of Friday Harbor, Washington.
