Study at Friday Harbor Labs this Year

Spend a quarter studying in residence at the UW’s marine field station at Friday Harbor Labs (FHL). Undergraduates can study at FHL in spring, summer or autumn quarters, and the deadline for spring/summer applications is February 1.

Explore the marine environment of the Salish Sea where your classroom is a marine preserve, and the boats are just steps away from your dorm.

  • Courses for all levels from introductory marine biology to advanced research apprenticeships.
  • Get to know your teachers with class sizes frequently less than 20 students.
