A place you can both agree on.Parents

The safety and well-being of our residents is our top priority.
As UC Santa Barbara’s premier housing provider, we take pride in our experienced and professional management team. The LOOP is much more than just a place to reside - but a place to meet people and interact; to play, study, and learn; to live a healthy lifestyle and contribute to a vibrant student community.

Peace of Mind: Our facility is conveniently located one block from the University of Santa Barbara Campus and directly across the street from two of the university’s largest lecture halls. While your students live at the LOOP, you can have peace of mind. The LOOP is a state of the art, clean and green home away from home. Read more about what the LOOP is doing for the wellness of our residents and for the health of the environment.

Academics: Because academics are the number one priority for our residents (and parents), we have provided a 24-hour study lounge at the LOOP. The fourth floor study lounge provides residents a quiet, private area to work and study, while our ocean-view rooftop lounge provides a more contemplative atmosphere. Additionally, our 24-hour “No Party Policy” ensures a quiet atmosphere, and our on-site manager or lobby attendant is always available to ensure community rules are enforced.

Security: The LOOP is secured by a state-of-the-art radio frequency identification (RFID) security access system, and is monitored by 24-hour surveillance cameras. The facility is also staffed by a full time live-in manager, and lobby attendants during normal business hours. Additionally, the LOOP is located directly across the street from the new Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Foot Patrol Station, ensuring added safety and security.

Momma & Poppa Bear Program: Parents of our residents are kept "in the loop" through quarterly newsletters and thoughtful LOOP goodies. We look forward to making both the resident's experience and their parent's blissful. During move-in day, parents will be pampered and throughout the year will be updated on special events that will be happening at the LOOP year round..

Feeling Ill: We know that the health and happiness of your student is your number number one priority; so if your student gets sick, we offer care packages filled with items that show some love including chicken noodle soup and warm tea and honey. Simply email us at and we'll make sure your student gets some TLC..
