UC Santa Barbara takes great pride in providing an enriching student housing experience for our students. Under normal circumstances, we offer housing guarantees to a large percentage of our student population. However, it is not possible for us to know whether the current public health crisis will allow us to maintain normal operations in undergraduate student housing when the fall quarter begins. Consequently, like many universities across the country, we cannot offer a housing guarantee at this time.
Planning efforts are underway to bring students, faculty, and staff back to campus this fall, but those decisions will be guided by public health guidelines as well as considerations for the health and well-being of our community. We are still awaiting guidance from campus and health authorities to determine how many spaces we can offer to student residents. We are committed to housing students on campus to the maximum extent possible, but it will be some time before we know more precisely how many students we can accommodate in our housing units.
