UC Santa Barbara

April 28th - May 1st, 2021: Climate Justice Symposium for Transforming Education; July 2021 CHESC

Car and Carpooling

There will be carpool options from most areas of California to the conference.  Most of our attendees arrange their own carpools with people coming from their campus.  If you need assistance identifying people from your campus that will be attending, please email Katie Maynard, and we can send you a list of people from your area that may be interested in carpooling.

Parking is complementary if you are staying in the UCSB Apartments, however a parking permit is required. Permits are provided upon request at our front desks, along with directions to assigned parking lots. Visitors must purchase a parking permit using the self-pay machine in the Sierra Madre Village parking lot. Visitors and participants that need to park on campus will be required to pay $8 for an entire day (Monday-Friday), as well as $4 per day on the weekends. Parking permits are not valid on campus and are only valid in the lot designated on the permit. 

Depending on which housing option you choose, you may want to use any of the following addresses in Google maps:

  • Sierra Madre Apartments at UCSB
    555 Storke Rd, Goleta, CA 93117
  • Santa Catalina Residence Hall
    6850 El Colegio Rd, Goleta, CA 93117

If you are not staying in any of the above housing locations, we recommend that you use the on-campus housing address: 555 Storke Rd, Goleta, CA 93117 and park in Lot 65 and purchase your parking permit using the pay machine in the lot.
