Effective 1 July 2017: To cover its costs the Gump Station has the following daily fees for users whose bills are being paid by a project or class administered through the University of California or its partners (Consortium members). The UC and other Consortium members subsidize the Station and so fees are lower than for other users. 

Flat Fees:

The Gump Station charges a flat fee for usage of all common facilities: labs, classrooms, shared vehicles/boats (including gas), internet, and scientific diving (SCUBA tank fills). Meals are not provided and all housing is self-catering. An external caterer can be arranged for groups requiring a meal plan (contact Station for details).

Usage will be summarized each month and an invoice issued by email. Goods and services that are not covered by the flat fee (e.g., catering services, customs agent) are billed separately as 'pass through expenses'. Users requiring such goods and services must notify the Gump Station management in advance and an administrative charge may be levied (15% of total).  All invoices are issued by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research in Berkeley and this is where all payments must be sent. Payment options and instructions will be sent with your invoice. The Gump Station in Moorea does not issue invoices or accept any payments.  Please contact Christine Owen for further information.

NOTE: The University of California subsidizes Gump Station operations and the user rates are calculated according to University policy to recover the remaining costs of operating the facility. The University strives to maintain stable rates, but reserves the right to change Gump Station rates at any time.
