UCSB Summer Housing

Some additional campus lodging options are available during the summer.

Summer Inn Santa Barbara

During the summer months when UCSB is not in session, there is a facility called Summer Inn Santa Barbara. This lodging is provided in a newer UCSB student-housing complex, Manzanita Village. Guests can use the complex's Carrillo Swimming Pool. The current year's dates of availability and rates for single and double rooms (there are many more doubles than singles) are available on their reservations site.  Summer Inn runs a free shuttle to and from the Goleta terminal of the Santa Barbara Airbus, Goleta Amtrak station, and the Santa Barbara Airport; check the Summer Inn website for shuttle hours and reservation information.

2016 rates varied from $95/night for a single room on a non-holiday weekday to $155 for a double room on a holiday weekend. Please make your own reservation by phone or by using the online registration form.

Santa Ynez Apartments

These apartments are available from late June until the end of August. You will need to submit your KITP invitation letter after reserving, in order to show that you are a KITP visiting scholar. They are located a half mile from the main campus (about 1.5 miles from KITP, and very close to our residence) on El Colegio Road. There are 200 two-bedroom apartments, which accommodate four people each. All apartments are furnished and include linen service and wireless high-speed Internet. The kitchen supplies are minimal, but more can be purchased at the nearby KMart. The complex has on-site laundry facilities and is accessible via bus or off-street bike and walking paths. The 2016 nightly rate was $145. Information and online reservations may be found at https://www.conferences.ucsb.edu/. Guests receive a free parking pass for the apartment complex but not for campus.

West Cottages

These two guest cottages are located 3 miles west of campus, quite close to the beach. There are 12 private bedrooms, some with private baths and some with shared baths. Family-friendly suites are available. There are shared kitchen facilities and shared open living spaces. There are options for couples and families. The rooms require a minimum stay of 5 nights, and reservations must be made on their website at least 10 business days in advance. These are available year-round. The cost includes a campus parking pass.
