Accommodation Options

On-Campus Single Accommodation

On-campus single accommodation includes tuition, materials, room, and board from Sunday evening through Friday noon. Meals are served at the campus dining hall and the course Lobster Bake, held at the Cram Alumni House, is included. Housing is in one of the campus dormitories and each participant has a private bedroom within a four-person quad. A bathroom and common room are shared by the quad residents. Quad apartments are segregated by male and female occupancy.

Off-Campus Accommodation

Participants may stay off-campus for the course and the registration fee includes tuition and materials. On-campus meal plans are available, and a full meal plan includes the Lobster Bake. If the meal plan is not purchased, there is the option to purchase Lobster Bake ticket separately.

On-Campus Quad Apartment Accommodation

A limited number of quad apartments is available for each course. As the number is very limited the College will offer these only to groups of two to four, or families; they will not be available for individuals. Only one person in a quad apartment will be registered for the course. The quad apartments are the same as those for single accommodation, but the entire quad is made available. There are no cooking facilities and meal plans are available at additional cost. Meal plans, that include the Lobster Bake, are available for adults and children, or the Lobster Bake can be purchased separately.

Meal Plan or Lobster Bake for Off-Campus or Apartment Accommodation

Off-campus and apartment participants are not registered for the meal plan or the Course Banquet, known as the Lobster Bake.  We encourage everyone to attend the Lobster Bake as this is an opportunity to meet and interact with other participants and the instructors.  If a full meal plan is preferred, which includes the Lobster Bake, that is also available.MM

Meal Plan, is for Sunday dinner through Friday lunch.  The Meal Plan includes the Lobster Bake

Course Banquet, Lobster Bake, is held Monday evening of the course.

Coblentz Society Scholarship

 The Coblentz Society is offering scholarships to young scientists and graduate students to help defray the cost of tuition.  Further details may be found on the Coblentz Society website, Travel Grants and Scholarships.

Registration Deadline

The deadline for receipt of the formal registration fee June 28, 2021. Participants are urged, however, to submit their registrations well in advance of this date to be assured that accommodations can be reserved. This is of particular importance to those wishing quad suite apartment accommodations, as these facilities are very limited.
