Guests, Alumni, and Visitors
Non-scientists and students (Guests, Alumni and Visiting Groups):
RMBL charges a 25% surcharge on station fees and housing for anybody who is not a scientist (defined as someone who has an approved research application or is a visiting scientist), a research assistant, a student, staff member, or an immediate family member (partner, parent, or child) of a scientist, research assistant, student, or staff member. In 2013, station fees for guests, alumni, and visiting groups will be $21.00 per person per day.
There is a maximum limit of 160 people living at RMBL on a daily basis, which includes guests, so it is possible that permission for guests will be denied. To request housing for an overnight guest (whether in your cabin or in a separate cabin) the guest must fill out the online Alumni & Guest Registration Form before arriving in Gothic. If possible, please fill out the form at least two days in advance. After reviewing the registration form, the Operations Coordinator will contact you and your guest within a week with a housing assignment. Guests of RMBL Users will be billed to that RMBL User unless other arrangements are made with billy barr at check-in. Alumni visitors and other general guests must also fill out the Alumni & Guest Registration Form.
All guests must check in at the Weese Admin Office during normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 8am-12pm and 1pm-5pm). If your guest will not be able to check in during business hours, please pick up copies of the necessary forms from the Admin Office before your guest arrives. These forms can be delivered to the Admin Office Mailbox after your guest has filled them out.
Anyone who has an unregistered guest will pay a $50 penalty, and the guest may be asked to leave. You are responsible for your guests’ fees, as well as making certain they leave a clean living space. If a surprise guest arrives, email or leave a note in the office ASAP for the Director of Finance and Operations.
The day use fee for guests camping or staying off-site who wish to shower, dispose of trash, or use computers at RMBL (but do not stay overnight) is $9.25/day. For more information on fees, please view rmbl.org/RateSheet and rmbl.org/housing.
