Tropicana Del Norte - Housing for UCSB Students!

Whether you’re headed to UC Santa Barbara for Physics or Film Studies, Political Science or Computer Science, Tropicana Del Norte Private Residence Hall is a small community of hard-working and talented UCSB students where you can thrive.

You’ll find us directly adjacent to UCSB’s main campus, close to lecture halls and athletic venues. At Tropicana Del Norte, you’ll live in a comfortable suite, dine in the café, make life long friends, study together and enjoy social and community and campus events.

Each of our 50 furnished suites offers more personal living space than a traditional dorm room, with three bedrooms, a living room and two private bathrooms. You have your choice of single, double, triple and quad occupancy bedrooms—and we help you find roommates with our roommate matching service.

It’s easy to meet people when you live at Del Norte. Our Resident Assistants organize dozens of get-togethers every month. Or get together with your friends at our onsite café, where it’s all you can eat, with all day dining. Our resort-style amenities include a 27-seat movie theater, rec room, fitness center, heated pool, and 24-hour quiet study lounge.

Your room, unlimited meal plan, light housekeeping and utilities—even basic cable and high-speed WiFi—are all included in one easy monthly payment.
