UCSB Housing, Dining & Auxiliary Enterprises offers a variety of housing options, from traditional style residence halls to suite and apartment accommodations. The rates in the below tables are per person and effective for the 2016-2017 academic year (for next academic year's rates, please refer to 2017-2018 rates) . All rates include internet access, live-in staff, 24-hour on-call maintenance and emergency staff, and more. Additional information about each community, including amenities, floorplans, and photos, can be found via the H&RS Residences Page. Rates are subject to change.
UCSB residence hall triple rooms are considered temporary, whether or not a student requests one as their top preference. Our standard is a double room, so budget for a double. Students will receive a rate discount only for the time three students are booked in the room. If one (or both) of the roommates move out, the remaining student(s) will be billed the double room rate, prorated, from that date through the end of the contract period.
