Kitt Peak Summit Dormitory Room Assignments

Rooms 1 and 2 are set aside for observers using the Bok Telescope. Rooms 4 and 5 are set aside for Spacewatch observers. Any use of rooms 3, 6, or 7 MUST be reserved in advance. To reserve a room, contact Barbara Abril via email with your complete request as soon as possible since assignments for rooms 3, 6, and 7 are on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you take any room in the dormitory without a reservation and the individual with a valid reservation for that night arrives, you are required to yield to the reservation holder and vacate the room immediately. Individuals who are not observing at the Bok or Spacewatch telescopes are NOT to take rooms 1, 2, 4, and/or 5 without a reservation or the permission of the site supervisor. Failure to follow these policies or failure to use your reserved dormitory space (i.e., cancel your reservation if your plans change) will threaten your privilege to use the Steward Observatory dormitory. Questions concerning dormitory policies should be directed to Paul Smith ( or Joe Hoscheidt (
