For greatest convenience, we recommend making reservations with Santa Barbara as your final destination. Flights connect from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Denver, and Dallas/Fort Worth. The UCSB campus is only a two-minute drive from the airport. Visit the SB Airport's official website for further information.
Connect to UCSB via the Santa Barbara Airbus motorcoach shuttle (visit their website for schedules and reservations). Get off at the Goleta stop and call your residence hall for a complimentary shuttle to campus (conference attendees only).
Airport/Airbus Shuttles to UCSB:
For conference guests staying in UCSB housing, FREE shuttle service is available on arrival and departure days to and from Santa Barbara Airport and Santa Barbara Airbus Goleta Stop. Just phone the front desk for pickup upon arrival. Front desk phone numbers are listed on the Residence Hall Fact Sheets.
Amtrak terminals are located in Santa Barbara (12-15 miles from UCSB) and Goleta (3 miles from UCSB). However, travelers will need to arrange their own taxi or other transportation to UCSB campus; we do NOT provide free shuttle service to or from the train stations.
