Committed to supporting your personal quest for
independence and academic success.

Welcome Home.


Tropicana Student Living offers residence hall and apartment living to students attending the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB), Santa Barbara City College (SBCC) and international language schools.

Our communities provide  college students with flexible rooming options, meal plans and professional staff to ensure a successful transition from home to independent  college living. In addition to providing an environment that supports academic success, Tropicana sponsors social, educational, and recreational events, creating an enriching overall college living experience for our residents.

Our management team, who lives on site, maintains close ties with UCSB and SBCC campus officials to ensure that our student residence life philosophies and policies are consistent with on-campus missions and policies.

Tropicana Student Living is proud to be the Official Student Housing sponsor of UCSB Athletics. We are host to more than 90 summer camps and conferences annually and have been the summer home of Michael Jordan’s Flight School since 1995.
