Visiting UCSB


If your student is considering attending UCSB, we strongly encourage you to visit our campus. The UCSB Visitor Center hosts over 40,000 guests per year and provides admissions presentations, campus tours, and transfer advising sessions. Parents and students are able to get a better perspective on campus, residential life, and the student experience at UCSB.

Once your student attends UCSB, you may wish to return and visit your student. We encourage you to come explore campus, visit your student's residence hall, and enjoy the many attractions of the surrounding communities. The Visitor Center Web site includes local Santa Barbara information and local accommodations.
