Welcome to the University of California at Santa Barbara!
UCSB is one of 10 University of California campuses. Our campus is ideally nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains, about 100 miles northwest of Los Angeles. Known as the American Riviera, Santa Barbara is famous for its Spanish colonial architecture, beautiful beaches, and Mediterranean-like climate. Its mild temperature and prime location allow for a variety of outdoor activities all year round.
UCSB boasts 5 Nobel Prize winners since 1998, is listed as the 12th best public universities in the nation by U.S. News and World Reports, and has been named one of Newsweek Magazine’s “hottest” universities, making it the ideal place to study abroad!
