Dress Code

BME camp activities take place in laboratory and engineering shop areas.  When working in these areas, students are required to wear long pants and shoes that completely cover the feet –closed toes and heels. Students may bring sweat pants to wear over shorts, if they choose.

Housing and Meals

This is a residential camp and commuting is not possible.  BME campers will be housed in Hausdoerffer Hall.  Hausdoerffer Hall is designed apartment style housing up to 5 students that share a bathroom and small kitchenette.  It is one of the newest residential facilities on campus.  Students are segregated by gender.  Three biomedical engineering students will be camp counselors and will also be housed in the same Hall near the campers for the duration of the camp.  Linens will be provided.

Meals will be in the Atrium at Eickhoff Hall, with the exception of the welcome picnic on Sunday July 14th in the STEM Forum and dinner on Wednesday evening when pizza will be provided in the STEM Building.  The Atrium at Eickhoff offers a variety of foods including vegetarian options.
