Housing

The following information is used to assign housing at RMBL. Housing assignments are ultimately the decision of the Director of Finance and Operations and they are based on the overall housing needs of the entire RMBL community. We will do our best to accommodate your needs, but please note that we may not be able to place you in your housing choices. A list of cabins and rates can be found at rmbl.org/housing.

Your arrival and departure dates are very important and please report them as accurately as possible. Please let us know if you are flexible with your arrival and departure dates. Onsite housing may be difficult for us to arrange between the mid June and mid August. Contact the Director of Finance and Operations immediately if your dates change. If you arrive earlier or need to stay longer than indicated, we may not be able to accommodate your request. Please understand RMBL's housing is finely coordinated due to limited space and the day you plan to depart we are likely placing someone else in your cabin.

We generally make housing assignments by April 24. If you request space before April 24, we will contact you after housing assignments are made. If you request space after April 24 we will make every attempt to respond promptly. To receive priority in housing assignments, we recommend that you fill out your application before April 1.

However, if you prefer to rent linens, we charge a flat rate of $50/person/week for rental of the following set of linens and bedding: top sheet, fitted sheet, pillowcase, blanket, comforter, bath towel, hand towel, and wash cloth. We do not offer rental of individual items, only the set. You may launder linens yourself during your visit or return all items and receive a new set for an additional $50. Missing or damaged items will be charged to your bill upon check-out.

Please note that quantities are limited and RMBL requires at least two weeks advanced notice for linen requests.

Would you like to rent linens?

How many sets and what dates do you require linens?

Meals at RMBL

We encourage you to sign up for meals in the billy barr community center, as this place is a great location for potential collaboration and meaningful interaction with other scientists.

Meal prices for 2017 are:$8.50 for breakfast$11.75 for lunch$13.75 for dinner$31.00/day for three meals per day

You can sign up for all meals, or for one meal/day only. Please understand that if you sign up for a specific meal plan, you will automatically be billed for that meal plan whether or not you are actually eating in the Dining Hall.

If you would like more flexibility than the plans offered, you can sign up in the Dining Hall 24 hours in advance for any meal. Please either email cook@rmbl.org to sign up, or sign up 24-hours in advance in the sign-up binder in the Dining Hall.

Non-cooking cabin residents: You have two options. You can either select All Meals to have three meals a day at the Dining Hall. You could also sign up to cook in the domestic kitchen in the Community Center, if space is available. See below for more information on cooking in the domestic kitchen.

Cooking cabin residents: You are welcome to sign up for a meal plan even though you are in a cooking cabin.

When choosing your Meal Type, note that vegetarian meals are prepared based on the number of eaters. If you select "Meat" you must wait one half hour before you may eat the vegetarian meal and vice versa if you select "Vegetarian." The Dining Hall does not currently accommodate vegans.

If you have other dietary restrictions such as wheat allergies, etc. please select "Food Allergy" in addition to 'Meat' OR 'Vegetarian' and then use the text box to indicate your allergy.

Use of Domestic Kitchen: Residents may use the domestic kitchen in the Community Center, if space is available. They will sign up through the Administration office at office@rmbl.org to have a zone and code assigned. The cost is $1.00/day/person with a $25.00 minimum. If RMBL assigns a resident to use the domestic kitchen, due to other housing constraints, the use is free. Use of the domestic kitchen is free, if the above-ground water lines in the townsite have been turned off. A cleaning fee of $40.00/hr may be charged if the space is not left in a clean condition after check-out.
