Travel Planning for Arrival and Departure

It may take up to half a day to travel between Seattle and Friday; if you are flying into Seattle from another city in the U.S. or internationally, you may need to spend the night near the Seattle airport in either or both travel directions.  See Getting to & Arriving at FHL.

STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO ARRIVE AT FHL THE AFTERNOON/EVENING BEFORE THE FIRST DAY OF CLASS, CHECKING IN AFTER 3:00 P.M.

For details on arrival procedures, see Getting to & Arriving at FHL. The first meal served will be dinner (6:00 – 6:30 pm) on the day before classes begin. There are no other activities scheduled that day; the evening is set aside for you to unpack and settle into your room.

If you plan to arrive in Washington State a day or more earlier, contact the FHL Visitors Coordinator to ask if housing will be available for rent ahead of time; if not, you may need to stay in a hotel in Seattle, Friday Harbor or Anacortes (where the ferry terminal is).

Departure

AUTUMN, WINTER, and SPRING: Students may depart after classes end at 5:00 p.m. on Friday or spend the night and depart on Saturday, no later than 11 a.m. (breakfast is included).

SUMMER: Students may depart after morning classes end on Friday or stay for lunch (included) and depart at 1 p.m. on Friday. Students will be asked to move belongings out of their dorm room or hut by 11 a.m., luggage may be stored in the FHL Dining Hall until departure after lunch.

Class Times

FHL courses and research apprenticeships require a full-time commitment, normally all day Monday-Friday in Spring and Autumn Quarters, Monday-Friday plus Saturday mornings for summer courses.

November Holiday (Thanksgiving)

Thanksgiving Day is celebrated in the U.S. on the fourth Thursday of November, and FHL classes are not held on that Thursday or the following Friday. FOR AUTUMN 2020, due to COVID-19 regulations, students will be required to stay at FHL through the Thanksgiving holiday.
