The Gump Station charges a 'flat fee' per person (researcher, professor, or student). The fee gives access to all shared facilities, subject to availability and according to Station usage policies. It includes usage of labs, internet, scuba, cars, and boats. Most users stay in one of the Station's on-site housing options, but a day use fee is charged for users staying elsewhere.
Residential rates are in self-catering accommodations (i.e., do not include meals), but catering is an option for groups at an additional charge.
The rates are calculated to recover the full cost of operating the Gump Station. Financial contributions from the University of California and institutions in the Gump Consortium (see Governance section on home page) enable their users to pay a lower rate. The Gump Station strives to maintain stable rates, however, the University of California reserves the right to change the rates at any time - posting any such changes with as much notice as possible. Users should anticipate annual increases to reflect cost of living inflation.
- Usage will be summarized each month and an invoice issued by email.
- Goods and services (purchased on request of users) that are not covered by the flat fee are billed separately as 'pass through expenses'. This may incur a % service charge (e.g., 15% but consult with Station beforehand for current rate).
- All payments are made to the University of California in Berkeley - payment options and instructions will be sent with your invoice.
- The Gump Station does not accept any payments in Moorea
