COVID-19 Information: 

The UCSB campus, including the Visitor Center, is currently closed. We are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and making decisions in accordance with county health guidelines. We strongly discourage visiting campus at this time as most buildings and facilities, including restrooms, are inaccessible. Campus-wide updates can be viewed here. As the situation evolves, we will post updates to this site.

In light of our closure, check out virtual opportunities to learn more about UCSB.

Virtual Tours of UCSB

While we wish we could show you around our beautiful campus in-person, you can explore UC Santa Barbara from the comfort of your home - or anywhere for that matter! 

Available Options:

1. Interactive and three-dimensional, our virtual campus visit (linked above) features a realistic online walking tour with rich media, video content and 360-degree panoramic views. The virtual tour is available in English, Spanish, Mandarin and Korean.

2. You can also join a guided virtual tour, offered twice weekly, to explore campus. Led by a UCSB tour guide, this interactive online visit will allow you to learn more about campus, academics, and student life.
