Living on Campus @ UC Santa Barbara
The University of California Santa Barbara is an energetic campus located between the beautiful Pacific Ocean and the majestic Santa Ynez Mountains. During the week, this vibrant campus is our home away from home. Dormitory rooms are doubles, with a shared private bathroom connecting two rooms. Our dorm features an incredible array of facilities, including an Olympic-size swimming pool, computer room, recreation room with pool tables and ping pong tables, floor lounges with sofas and cable television, fitness room, linen service, and laundry room.
While on campus, the group will eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner in Portola Dining Commons, the dormitory dining hall. Portola is cafeteria-style, consisting of various stations with plenty of choices at each meal for all types of diets. Enjoy everything from made-to-order omelets to lasagna to delicious desserts. While traveling on weekends, breakfast and dinner are provided at our hotels and in various local restaurants.
Throughout our stay at UCSB there is time for visits to the Recreation Center, complete with soccer fields, racquetball courts, weight rooms, and fitness centers. You’ll also soak up the vibe at the University Center when we visit the bookstore, located at the center of this beautiful campus.
