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.
