Off Campus Housing

While more than half of UCSB students live off campus, housing in the Santa Barbara area can be very challenging! If you are considering living off campus, it is strongly recommended that you contact UCSB's Community & Housing Services at your earliest opportunity to learn about community housing resources and support.

Student Veteran Housing Information

If you are a student veteran who's already been accepted to UCSB and are in need of housing, please complete the Student Veteran Housing Info Request prior to your arrival at UCSB!
