Student Residence Hall Living - Shared Housing Opportunities with Food Included.
Residence Halls typically provides students with shared housing that includes a meal
plan, regularly scheduled custodial service and organized activities. Resident hall
management may adopt standards of conduct for those to whom they rent that go beyond
typical rental agreements. SBCC does not develop or administer these standards.
Currently there are two off-campus, independent, privately owned student residence
hall living opportunities. One in the Isla Vista area next to the UCSB campus with
direct bus service to the SBCC Campus that provides suite style living to SBCC students
called Tropicana Gardens Residence Hall (500 beds) and one closer to SBCC called Orchid House (24 beds). Below are the links to their websites and contact information. Tropicana Gardens
Residence Hall are encourages it's residents to participate in the SBCC Transfer
Academy, which assists students with focused academic planning and achievement and
timely transfer to participation UCs and CSUs and to take advantage of Cross Enrollment
opportunities at UCSB.
