Parking & Transportation


Residence Hall Parking

  • Students Living in the UCSB Residence Halls are not guaranteed a campus parking space and are encouraged to use other means of transportation to travel to off-campus destinations. There are a limited amount of parking spaces available to students living in the residence halls. If you do not receive a parking space please do not bring a car with you to UCSB. Other parking is not available (i.e. street parking in Isla Vista). Please note, you cannot sign up for parking until you have your residence hall assignment in early September.

Apartment Parking

  • Family Student Housing
  • Graduate Apartments
  • Undergraduate Apartments
    • Parking is generally available for those who wish to bring cars; however, parking is not guaranteed on site and may be located up to one mile away from your apartment. Permits for all Undergraduate Apartments can be purchased online via UCSB Transportation & Parking Services. Please note, when a continuing student signs up for the parking waitlist, their building will not come up. Please send an email to tps-sales@ucsb.edu to remedy this.
