The Western Arctic Research Centre can provide accommodation for individual researchers, or research groups, in our rowhouses. The rowhouses are about a 10 minute walk from the research centre and are located at 22-28 Nanuk Place. Each townhouse can accommodate up to six researchers in four bedrooms - two single rooms with one twin bed per room, and two double rooms with two twin beds per room.
The rowhouses are fully furnished. Each is equipped with bedding, pillows, cutlery, dishes, pots and pans, microwave, kettle, coffee maker, toaster, vacuum cleaner, some basic cleaning supplies, TV with cable in the living room, a washer and dryer, and wireless internet. Each rowhouse also has a phone on which you can make local calls free of charge (long distance calls require a calling card, available for purchase at most local stores). There are also shared barbeques on the front deck.
Some things that are not supplied in the rowhouses are food, towels, dish and laundry soap, toilet paper, toiletries or hand soap. Please plan accordingly.
Once per week, research centre staff will come by the rowhouses to pick up recyclables and food bank donations. Please make use of this service when you leave town and donate your unused non-perishable items to the food bank. Proceeds from all refundable containers will also be donated to the Inuvik Food Bank.
Accommodations can be requested by completing a Logistical Support Request Form. Please contact the Logisitics and Administration Assistant for more information on accommodations at (867) 777-3298 ext. 201.
