Student Residential Living - Shared Housing Opportunities with Food Included.
Residential Living 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 is are two off-campus, independent, privately owned student residential
living opportunities. One in the Isla Vista area near the UCSB campus that provide
beds to SBCC students called Tropicana Gardens and one closer to SBCC called Orchid House. Below are the links to their websites and contact information. Students who are interested
in securing a bed at Tropicana Gardens are encouraged to participate in the SBCC Transfer
Academy, which assists students with focused academic planning and achievement and
timely transfer to UCSB. Contact the residence halls regarding specific criteria
