Program Info

Dress Code: This summer, you will be performing research in a professional environment. While we do not require specific dress, we ask for you to be conscious of your lab or clinical setting. Please also be sure to follow the safety dress rules of your laboratory.

Social Activities: We will be offering several in-person social activities, per the updated safety guidelines. We are expecting everyone to attend the first event, a picnic not yet scheduled, but all other events are optional. SURFS will organize these events, but you will have to pay for them. We are excited to help you connect with each other!

Housing Info

Housing will be in Tall Hall, the suite style housing, for students staying with us this summer. Some guidelines are below!

  • All students staying with us will have abide by regular university policies during the summer including the visitation policy. They will have to check in and out guests during the hours at the front desks. 
  • For check in and out, the students will complete a room condition report with an RA on their arrival and departure and exchange keys and will be responsible for cleaning the space on their departure per our normal checkout processes. They will not need to schedule a time to come check in, we will have the front desk staffed and ready to check the ​students in as they come. 
  • Check out the calendar above for the specific move in/out windows.
  • We will not be providing meal plans for SURFS participants, but you can purchase one on your own.
