Safety and Security
Project Oceanology is located on the Avery Point Campus of the University of
Connecticut. Campus police are available to us and routinely patrol the
entire campus to ensure everyone's safety. All our vessels are subject to
rigorous standards established by the U.S. Coast Guard. All staff undergo random drug testing, have been finger printed and undergo background checks.
A cafeteria with a casual American menu with indoor and outdoor dining is
located in our building. Open Monday-Friday with expanded hours from May to
September. Typical meals include bagels, cereals and eggs for breakfast,
boxed lunches with sandwiches, chips and fruit for lunch. Dinners range from
hamburgers and fries to lasagna and salad. All meals are prepared by
Savories, the food service company that operates the cafeteria. The cafeteria
is inspected by State of Connecticut and University of Connecticut health
Our full time staff are trained in First Aid, CPR and hold lifeguard
