Rates for Non-University of Washington Field Trips

A field trip consists of instructors with a group of students, visiting FHL as part of a credited course or program.

All charges are subject to 8.3% Sales Tax.

Housing (per unit)

Participants are charged for housing according to unit prices listed for researchers.  Field Trip students will generally be assigned to shared (double) dorm rooms or huts. However if dorms/huts are not available, they will be assigned to shared cottages. To allow organizers to budget reliably for student expenses, FHL will honor the shared dorm room rate ($33/night), regardless of where students may ultimately be housed.
