Can I bring a car? What about parking spaces?


Limited parking spaces are available at an additional fee for UCSB students residing in university housing. Generally, parking spaces are not in the immediate vicinity of residence halls, but in remote campus locations. For more information, please visit our Parking & Transportation page. You may apply for a permit after you get your building and room assignment in late summer.

We encourage students to use the MTD bus service. This service is free for UCSB students and serves the entire area of Santa Barbara. Most students either bicycle or walk to and from their residence hall or apartment to classes.
