    From there, we recommend taking the SuperRide shuttle - very convenient and less expensive than taxis ($15-18 one-way versus $22-24 for a taxi). There is usually a shuttle waiting at the airport for deplaning passengers (a large white van with "SuperRide" in big blue lettering), otherwise there is a courtesy phone in the baggage claim area. Also, it's convenient and a bit less expensive to schedule a round-trip with them. For more info, see

  • Flying into Los Angeles International (LAX) airport: LAX is about a 2-hour drive south of Santa Barbara and is served by most major airlines and rental car companies. LAX website

    As an alternative to renting a car, the Santa Barbara Airbus can take you from LAX to either downtown Santa Barbara or Goleta. They offer discounted rates for round-trips and pre-paid trips. For schedules, fares, and pick-up/drop-off locations, please see

  • Flying into Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena (BUR) airport: On the northern edge of the greater Los Angeles area, BUR is about 2 hours from Santa Barbara and is served by many major airlines and rental car companies. Airfares are usually comparable to LAX fares. See for more information.

    For your convenience, we have reserved a block of rooms with Manzanita Village, the newest addition to the on-campus housing program at UCSB. This complex opened in Fall 2002 and provides “no frills” residence hall style housing to UCSB students and visitors.

    Each building has a laundry/vending room, a lounge with view terrace, and a study room. Some buildings are equipped with full kitchens. The rooms themselves have extra-long twin beds with linens provided, a closet, a desk, a built-in bookshelf, and a dresser. Internet access will be available at no extra charge. Hall bathrooms are shared among 4 rooms.

    The 2-week rate (14 days, 13 nights) is approximately $573 for a shared room, $793. Additional information and on-line registration: UCSB Conference Services Registration.

    Should you prefer alternative lodging, we encourage you to secure it as soon as possible, as finding affordable hotel rooms in the Santa Barbara area during the summer can be difficult. For hotel suggestions, please click here or here.
