Facilities at FSUCML

The FSUCML is well-equipped to support ecological and oceanographic research in the remarkably diverse array of habitats along the coast and offshore of the lab. It also is a perfect site for extended stays for research, field-oriented courses, or institutional meeting, workshops, or departmental retreats. We can help you design the perfect field day for K-12 students or a week-long program for undergraduates.

Research space includes laboratories, greenhouses, and a wide variety of holding tanks, aquarium systems, and experimental tanks. Teaching space includes wet classrooms, a conference room (seats 10), and an auditorium (seats 70). Housing is available for short or long-term stays for up to 40 individuals. 

Whatever your organization -- university department or office, state or federal agency – and whatever your goal – conducting research, teaching a course, taking a field trip, or holding an annual retreat or workshop for strategic planning, budgeting, team building, or problem solving – the FSUCML offers a broad range of facilities for your use, including dormitories, an auditorium, conference room, classrooms, laboratories, and greenhouses.
