What Students Are Saying

beautiful location, mostly amazing academics, and vibrant life. dorm rooms are small but that's to be expected. isla vista isn't as scary as everyone says it is!

UCSB is the perfect school for students who are serious about their academics but also want to have fun meeting new people, studying on the beach, and taking advantage of what So-Cal has to offer. With its beautiful location and close knit community, UCSB will become your home away from home in no time. We Gauchos "Gaucho Back" no matter what.
