Whiteley Scholar Rates

These rates apply to any expenses that are not paid on a UW budget, regardless of a person’s UW affiliation. They are higher than budget rates because the University of Washington adds institutional overhead.

Charges subject to 8.3% Sales Tax.

**All visitors on campus will be charged Dining Dollars, with the exception of family members accompanying researchers/scholars and not using FHL facilities.

10 Day Cancellation Policy

If you would like to cancel all or part of your stay, please notify the Whiteley & Office Manager in writing at least 10 days before the first date to be cancelled. For any dates cancelled fewer than 10 days in advance, FHL will charge 20% of estimated expenses and any fees.

Cleaning Policy

If after departure, additional staff time is required for cleaning a housing unit or lab space beyond what is ordinarily needed, you will be billed for extra time at a rate of $57.20 + tax/hour.
