Hours of Operation
Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The office is closed in accordance with the campus holiday schedule.

COVID-19 Operations
Effectively meeting the public health challenge presented by COVID-19 means minimizing as much as possible the number of people on campus, while maintaining critical University functions. The campus remains open, but only essential personnel are reporting to work on-site. The VCSA Office is fully operational, but our in-person office location is closed until further notice.

See the UCSB COVID-19 Information page for additional information.
