To apply for space at the HRWC, please consider the following information and provide brief answers to the questions posed below. A single application is sufficient for a group of collaborators who are working on a single project though the role of each collaborator should be described. New applicants, and those well established in their fields, will have highest priority. Applications by individuals that include some form of interaction with other scholars or scientists are especially encouraged. Applications by graduate students for dissertation-related work are not normally considered, though graduate students may be included as part of lab groups or collaborations. Applications are reviewed and space is allocated by the HRWC Administrative Committee.

Applicants are recommended to check on the availability of space before applying. Flexibility in starting date will increase the probability of securing space. Please plan your visit carefully. HRWC is a small facility that must judiciously allocate space and time to visitors, especially during peak season. Non-emergency cancellations may result in the denial of future applications.
HRWC is ideally suited to house and provide study space for individuals or groups of up to six collaborators. Under special circumstances, groups up to ten may be accommodated, though not during periods of heavy use. Large groups might instead consider applying for use of the conference facilities at FHL.
Length of stay
Applicants should request space relevant to nature of the project. In order to accommodate more visitors, short stays (less than one month) are typical during the busy summer months. Repeat visits during a twelve-month period are limited to a cumulative total of three months. Repeat visits are welcome.
Applicants for space during the busy summer months (June – August) should apply before the February 1 deadline. Summer applications received any time after February 1 will be considered depending on availability of space. Applications for other periods are reviewed when submitted, though not normally more than six months in advance of the intended start date.
For 2019 Whiteley Center stay we are introducing an online application which interfaces with our new visitor management system (Iris).
You will be asked to sign into your Iris account. If this is the first time you access Iris, you should set up a new account. This new account will be your portal for FHL applications and confirmations. Please pay in person at departure.
