Located  on the foothills of the beautiful Catalina Mountains, the Biosphere 2 campus provides a non-traditional yet accessible venue.

The facilities of the B2 Conference Center comprise a Campus Village of 28 rustic Santa Fe style houses holding 106 double-capacity sleeping rooms and a number of double-occupancy offices. The accommodations are beautiful but as "dorms" they are a bit spare. Bedding, a set of towels, shampoo, soap, and lotion are all provided.

During your stay at B2 you will be residing in a rustic Santa Fe-style house.

These houses contain everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Each casiita has from three to five bedrooms and come complete with in-suite kitchens, living areas, and high-speed internet access, the 3-5 bedroom casitas are all in easy walking distance and provide the perfect place to unwind and socialize in-between or after meetings.

These comfortable accommodations all contain easy high-speed wireless internet access and central air conditioning.

Additional blankets and an extra pillows are available in the closet, along with an iron and ironing board. At night, the casita village is well lit, but the surrounding property can be quite dark. There is a flashlight in each bedroom. Come prepared for encounters with native wildlife common to the area.

The Winter School is supported by grants from the Army Research office (ARO) and the National Science Foundation(NSF).
