Practical information for course participants


General things to consider

When you are on your way to Husö to participate in a field course, remember to bring the following things with you:

  • Towels and bed linen (pillowcase, duvet cover and bed sheets – sleeping bag is NOT allowed). If you forget to bring your own bedlinen, there is a possibility to rent bed linen for a small fee.
  • Indoor shoes (for the laboratory)
  • Supplies for taking notes

During a field course, you spend quite a lot of time outdoor, both in a boat and on land, sometimes in not so pleasant weather! Therefore, bring suitable field clothes (e.g., warm clothes, a cap, gloves, rain gear and rubber boots). Accommodation takes place in 2-4 person rooms. During courses, a fixed fee is charged to cover the cost of full board, which includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and evening tea. Let the station manager Tony Cederberg, tonycede@abo.fi, (phone: +358 (0)18 37310) know well in advance if you have a special diet or allergy (e.g. lactose intolerance or vegetarian / vegan diet). On Husö there is also a small kiosk with sweets, ice cream and drinks. Goods from the kiosk are not included in the full board fee.

Voluntary snorkelling can occur during the course, you are welcome to bring your own mask and snorkelling gear if you wish. Such equipment is also available at the station. Do not hesitate to contact the course leader or station manager if you have questions before the course.



There is a washing machine available for a small fee (includes detergent).


Payment of the course

When the course ends, A bill is given for the full board. Including in this bill is possible purchases from the kiosk and the use of the washing machine. The bill can be paid in cash or via internet banking. Card payment is not possible.



Joint transport to and from the station is arranged by the station and the course leader. If you bring your own car or if you arrange your own transportation, please notify this to the station manager or course leader well in advance of the start of the course.


We hope you enjoy the course. Welcome!
