Getting Started with Housing
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.
