Is parking available?

In Santa Ynez and Westgate, each resident is entitled to a parking permit for a yearly fee. Spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis, but there is generally ample parking for all residents with cars. El Dorado has 58 parking spaces allocated by lottery to any of the 140 residents that have cars for a yearly fee. Those not allocated an El Dorado parking space are entitled to a parking permit for the Santa Ynez parking lot across the street. Residents will be asked to register their vehicle during the online personal preferences process.

What should I bring?

The following are items residents often bring that are not included in the apartments: microwave, television, dishes, kitchen utensils, sheets, blankets, pillows, towels, desk lamp. You may want to coordinate with your future roommates to avoid unnecessary duplication of items.
