Brianna and Izzy give you off campus living tips

A majority of UCSB's student body lives off campus and the process for finding housing can become very confusing! Here are a few tips to make things a little easier! Also, figure out what rent you are comfortable paying for monthly early. The cost of living in IV ranges from $500 to $800 a month sharing a room and up to $1500 living in a single. The streets near campus or the beach will be louder and a bit more expensive! Also, if you are going home during the summer and your lease starts in June or ends in September, you will need to find a subleaser during Spring Quarter which can become very frustrating! Use housing resources in the Ucen and start asking around early to make things easier!
