Unless otherwise noted, all sessions are open for parents to attend. Students are also welcome to visit campus without a parent.
Optional Overnight Stay and SB Exploration:
Limited housing is available for students who wish to stay overnight in the dorms on either Thursday night or Friday night, each of which includes an additional schedule of events. If you would like to stay the night on campus, be sure to indicate which night on the registration form.
If you would like to request a friend to stay with, a current student to host you, or would like to stay in a specific dorm, please leave a note in the appropriate spot on the registration form.
An optional Santa Barbara (SB) Exploration Day will be offered on Saturday for interested students. Please see the schedule of events for further details. Students interested in attending the additional optional activities but do not wish to stay the night in the dorms are welcome to do so.
We do not have housing on campus for parents, but recommend these hotels.
What to bring:
Visitors will want to consider wearing comfortable shoes and bring layers. Students staying overnight should plan on bringing a sleeping bag and pillow, towel, toiletries, and other personal belongings needed for a night's stay in the dorms.
Students participating in Saturday's activities will want to bring means to buy lunch downtown and those interested in beach volleyball may want to consider bringing appropriate attire.
Transportation can be provided for students traveling without family members to and from Santa Barbara locations only. These locations include the Santa Barbara airport, train station, Greyhound station, and Santa Barbara Airbus stop. Students flying into Los Angeles International Airport without family members will want to consider a connecting flight to Santa Barbara or use the Santa Barbara Airbus.
Please provide all travel details one week prior to your arrival.
