What freshman residence hall has a mini-theater, gym and tanning booth literally footsteps away? The café is definitely one of the biggest highlights; the varying and delicious menus, organic and vegetarian options, and grills 'open all day' surpassed everyone's expectations. -Tanaya D.
My first year here at Tropicana del Norte was fantastic. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I love my room, my roomies and especially the positive energy and friendliness of all the staff. -Mayle T.
Tropicana has entirely and undoubtedly defined my enjoyable experience at UCSB this year. I arrived from a small rural town in Northern California, with no more than 10,000 people... I immediately fell in love with the RA staff ...who showed me the ropes of being a college freshman... -Matt
Living at Tropicana has been a wonderful experience. Meeting people from all over not only the country, but the world is amazing. Tropicana isn't only housing but it becomes a community and family. -Hannah G.
There no doubt in my mind that Tropicana Del Norte was definitely the best decision for my first year in college. Since being here I’ve made friends that I know will be in my life for a long time to come, which is really what college is all about. Creating bonds. -Melissa G.
From the very first few weeks that I lived here at Tropicana Del Norte I realized how different the environment was compared to other residence halls. It seems more like apartments rather than school dorms, which makes me feel more independent and free. -Ana M.
Being a FSSP kid from San Nicholas Dorms, moving to Tropicana Del Norte was a major change for a handful of reasons. Having my own bathroom was the instant selling point when deciding where to live but this is not the only reason. -Alex M.
Living at Tropicana has been a wonderful experience. Everyone always asks why I did not choose to live in the dorms my first year at UCSB, and I always answer that Tropicana is pretty much a more exciting, less expensive version of a dorm. -Betty G.
