Types of Transportation Available to Campus:
The Santa Barbara Airport is a 5-minute drive from campus. Taxis are available at the airport. Amtrak trains and Greyhound buses serve downtown Santa Barbara. A direct express bus is available from downtown to campus. Taxis are also available for the ride from the stations to campus.
Driving Instructions to Campus:
From the north, take U.S. Highway 101 south to the Storke Road/Glen Annie Road exit, which is approximately 12 miles north of Santa Barbara. Turn right on Storke Road and proceed two miles to El Colegio Road. Turn left onto El Colegio Road and proceed to the campus entrance. From the south, take U.S. Highway 101 north to the Airport/UCSB exit (route 217), which is approximately 8 miles north of Santa Barbara, then continue to the campus entrance. The daily parking fee at the campus is $8 Monday through Friday. The cost for weekend parking is $3.
Local Accommodations: Near By:
The campus is west of Santa Barbara, in Goleta, with no lodgings within walking distance. Two moderately priced motels are a short drive away; both have heated pools and complementary van service to and from the airport. Closest (about 2 miles away) is a Holiday Inn (5650 Calle Real, Goleta; 805-964-6241), with a restaurant. About 4 miles from campus is the Ramada Limited (4770 Calle Real, Santa Barbara; 805-964-3511 or 800-654-1965). Rates are only slightly more expensive than at the Holiday Inn, and the price includes a continental breakfast. Nearby beaches are a plus, and it is close to downtown shopping. If you need even more relaxation, watch the ducks on the freshwater pond.
Local Accommodations: Far Away:
Santa Barbara has many small inns. You might consider The Cheshire Cat (36 W. Valerio St.; 805-569-1610), a 20-minute drive from campus. Prices range from moderate to expensive. All rooms have private baths and telephones. The inn is close to the Mission Santa Barbara and to the shops and restaurants of the town. The price includes a gourmet continental breakfast and afternoon wine. The famous, very expensive San Ysidro Ranch (900 San Ysidro Lane; 805-969-5046) is situated in the foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains. It's 10 miles south of Santa Barbara and 25 minutes from campus. Hiking, an exercise room, swimming, golf, and tennis are available. Circle Bar B Guest Ranch is a more down-home guest ranch in Goleta (1800 Refugio Rd.; 805-968-1113), 30 minutes north of the university. This family-run, 1,000-acre ranch has 30 horses, hiking and riding trails, a swimming pool, and a Jacuzzi. While its price is in the expensive range, it does include 3 meals a day. Comedy theater is presented on weekends. Also try the Best Western South Coast Inn (5620 Calle Real, Goleta; 805-967-3200) or the Super 8 (6021 Hollister Ave, Goleta; 805-967-5591), or check the UCSB website at www.ucsb.edu for other Santa Barbara lodging.
