Housing & Residential Life

Students participating in 2YS will live on-campus in Anacapa Residence Hall, just steps away from the beach.  Current COVID conditions require that each student have their own room, but if conditions change by the time the program starts, students may be placed with a roommate.

2YS will offer a variety of social activities, so that students can connect, unwind, and get to know the campus. Depending on conditions at the time, activities may be virtual, or require social distancing.

Please note: We expect the following restrictions to be in effect during 2nd Year Summer. We will update this information as conditions change.

  • Students are required to be vaccinated for COVID-19 before arriving to the program, and must provide proof.

  • All dorm rooms will be capped at double occupancy.

  • Students may be required to undergo a brief quarantine period.

  • Indoor common spaces may be restricted.

  • When in public, all students must wear face coverings, maintain appropriate physical distance from others, and observe all current Public Health orders.

  • More information is available at https://www.housing.ucsb.edu/covid-19-information.

Because on-campus housing is not being guaranteed for 2nd year students during the 2021-2022 academic year, students participating in 2YS will not have the option to stay in their same dorm rooms after the program has ended.
