Deadline is today for on-site requests for houses and apartments this summer

Today, February 24, is the deadline for submitting requests for onsite Houses and Apartments for the summer of 2017.

Requests can be made for any period and need not commence on any particular date. Please make your request by using the online request form at .

Allocations of houses and apartments will be determined by the Housing Allocation Committee, based on experiment or theory group priority as indicated by a Directorate representative and in accordance with the needs of the Laboratory. Requests will no longer be sent to the Spokespersons for consideration.


Also, the Housing Office is still accepting online requests for Dormitory Rooms for all stays with arrival dates in 2017.  Requests will be processed as received by the Housing Office.  Each request must include:

  • Arrival and departure dates
  • Experiment
  • Institution
  • Occupation/Education status, (Scientist, Professor, undergraduate, graduate, postdoc, etc.)
  • Name of spouse or partner, as applicable (children cannot stay in a dormitory room)

The occupant’s name should be known at the time of request. If the name is not known, the request can include up to 3 rooms for unnamed individuals.

FOR SUMMER REQUESTS FOR DORM ROOMS (when any portion of the stay is between June 1 and August 31), please note that a limited number of dormitory rooms will be allocated to specific experiments or groups in accordance with the priorities of the lab, as determined by the   Directorate.  All other rooms will be allocated on a first come/first served basis.

For requests that cannot be accommodated, the requestor will be asked if they want to be on the wait list and offered a questionnaire to help determine need.

Requests for reserved blocks of multiple dormitory rooms for meetings, conferences, schools, or programs will be managed on a case-by-case basis by the Housing Office, and will depend on priorities of the lab, arrival dates, available housing, and number of requests. The summer months are a particularly difficult time to confirm requests of this nature.

Please note that personal or telephone requests will be accepted only when the Housing Office is open, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. CST. Therefore, we strongly encourage using the online request form at .


A fee equal to two weeks rent will be charged to an individual or group if notice of cancellation or postponement is not provided to the Housing Office two weeks prior to the scheduled arrival date. Postponements are allowed on a one-time basis only, for a maximum period of two weeks.  After two weeks, it may be necessary to reassign the accommodation.
