The Department of Geological and Environmental Sciences at Western Michigan University deeply values our Hydrogeology Field Course. As such, we try to do everything we can to help accommodate our HFC participants. To this end, we have compiled a list of resources that we hope will make your visit to Kalamazoo as easy and enjoyable as possible.
HFC participants are responsible for securing their own lodging and meals. Participants visiting Kalamazoo from elsewhere should consult the following options for information regarding temporary lodging.
- WMU Residence Life and guest housing
- WMU Apartments
- Past HFC participants have also camped at local campgrounds, stayed at long-term hotels, roomed together and/or signed short-term subleases.
The Children’s Place Learning Center is conveniently located on WMU’s campus, directly across from Rood Hall, the home of the Department of Geological and Environmental Sciences.
Those HFC participants who will be driving their personal vehicles to campus are required ti purchase a parking pass from Parking Services for the term that they are enrolled. Parking passes for these sessions are currently $65.
Do you have logistical needs that were not addressed by the resources above? We're happy to help! Please feel free to contact the department staff at any time:
