NOTE: Your housing or research facilities can not be assigned until you have submitted all the information requested in our Research and Housing Application.

We are doing our best to meet the needs of everyone who wants to be here, but COVID-19 restrictions necessitate a limited number of people in camp. Once we have confirmed that we can accommodate you and your research, we'll be in touch with further instructions. 

New Researchers

Is this your first time working at UMBS as a researcher (i.e. graduate student, research assistant, PI, etc.)? If so, click the button above to create a new user account (select My Account in the menu) and propose a new project on our new information management system, Mfield.

If you are part of a research team, the project lead must register the project first and give the exact project title to team members so they can register with the same project. Many projects are already registered with UMBS. If this is not your first field season with us, you will notice our new information management system, Mfield. However, the information you’ve provided us in the past (prior to 2019) has been migrated to the new system. All that is required is a password reset. If you are having trouble accessing this new system, contact Data Manager Jason Tallant at

Returning Researchers

If you have done research at UMBS before, click the above button to create a new research proposal OR update an existing project description from your user landing page under the User Menu. This information is critical to our ability to meet your project needs.

Click the above button to submit a new housing application with this year's information (dates, equipment you are bringing or will need, your research role, etc.). You may notice our new information management system, Mfield, is operational and your previously submitted data and content has been or is being migrated. To access your existing account, request a new password and follow the instructions sent to your email. If you are having trouble accessing this new system, contact Data Manager Jason Tallant at


Whether you are a first-timer or returning resident, please take time to read our Guide to Living and Working at the Biological Station. It should answer many of your questions about daily life and community standards.
