Accommodation: In 2019 we had Crabtree Hall at UWRF, but this may change to a different Hall in 2020. We will send you information on registering for accommodation soon. We pay for this directly to the dorms.
Travel to UWRF:
If you will fly we will request further information to book your flights to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. You will receive an electronic ticket. You will need some form of recognized picture ID (drivers license or passport) on the day you travel. Someone will meet you at the airport.
If you will drive to UWRF, then keep track of your miles as we will reimburse you for mileage from most direct route from your home to River Falls. You will need a summer parking pass to park your car on campus lots.
Getting on Board: On your first day you will have some paperwork to do. You will need to complete a federal I-9 form for employment verification. You can complete it before you arrive but you still need to bring proof (see form) of your eligibility to work in the US.
BootCamp: 2021 Madison BootCamp in Madison is from TBD. We usually spend a week in Madison at the IceCube bootcamp. Details and registration information can be found here: Bootcamp 2019
We'll have a list of projects here some time in mid May.
