Local Climate and Weather
Casual clothing is in order with a sweater or light jacket occasionally needed for the evenings. In June, the days are warm (70º F), and the nights are cool (50º F), with occasional morning fog. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended as the university is essentially a pedestrian campus.

About the City
Founded by the Spanish in the 18th century, Santa Barbara is considered to be one of the jewels of the California coast. It lies approximately 100 miles northwest of Los Angeles, nestled against the Santa Ynez mountains, overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  Nearby are many excellent ocean beaches, lakes, forests and mountains with varied hiking trails. Daily excursions can be made to the Hearst Castle, the flower fields of Lompoc, the Old World Village of Solvang, the Mission, the famous Court House, or the Botanical Gardens.


Santa Barbara Municipal Airport
The Santa Barbara Municipal Airport is recommended as the final flight destination. Several daily flights arrive from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Denver and Dallas/Fort Worth. The university is a 10-minute drive from the airport.

Santa Barbara Airbus
Several daily bus trips from Los Angeles International Airport to Santa Barbara are available. Make reservations at: (800) 423-1618, toll-free in the U.S. and Canada; (805) 964-7759; or Discounts are available for advance reservations and parties of two or more.

UCSB Parking Rules
UCSB parking permits are required 7 days per week. Guests are responsible for following parking rules and for any penalties. Please note that UCSB is a pedestrian campus and parking is limited. Be cautious of where you park.

  • On-Campus Attendees:
    Your parking lot assignment may not necessarily be close to your assigned Residence Hall or session location.
  • Off-Campus Attendees:
    Please park in the parking lot assigned for the conference. After entering the campus, turn at the traffic light onto Ocean Road and proceed about 100 yards, then turn left into the three-story STRUCTURE 22 PARKING. Machines selling "Pay & Display" permits are located in each parking lot. On Wednesday and Thursday evening after 5:00 p.m., you may move your car if you choose from parking STRUCTURE 22 TO LOT 3, which is closer to the University Center OR where the buses will depart for Dinner at the Winery on Thursday.

Steps for Parking Permits

  • You may purchase a new one-day permit each day from the "Pay & Display" machines, located in each parking lot or you can choose "DRC/EMC" from the menu on the machine and select the number of days you would like to purchase.
  • Machines DO NOT give cash change, but do accept credit/debit cards.
  • Purchase the permit and place on the dashboard of your car on the driver’s side, so that it is VISIBLE from outside the car.
