Santa Barbara is a tourist town. While there are many hotels in the area, the less expensive ones fill up fast, so make reservations early! The hotels closest to campus are in Goleta; those in downtown Santa Barbara are more expensive, and you'll need to take a car or MTD bus (24x for express service, line 11 for the bus that makes frequent stops in Santa Barbara and Goleta) to get to campus.

The following hotels are on a direct bus route to the UCSB campus, the airport, and downtown (take Line 11) and offer discounts to conference participants:
