Winter Storm Information
UCSB is monitoring developments related to current storm events and potential impacts to our community members. For students who are still returning to campus, we encourage you to check the CalTrans website for up-to-date road information, and plan your route accordingly. Amtrak has resumed rail service through Santa Barbara County, and the Condor Express and Island Packers are providing ferry service between Ventura and Santa Barbara.
The University will also be running shuttles to and from the Goleta Amtrak station and the harbor ferry. Shuttle times will be posted at www.tps.ucsb.edu. UCSB has made funds available to reimburse the cost of daily commutes by train or ferry rides or short-term accommodations until the highway is reopened for faculty, staff and students. More information can be found on the Chancellor's letter to campus (available here.)
