About University of California Santa Barbara
UCSB HOUSING & RESIDENTIAL SERVICES provides housing and associated residential life services for UCSB's undergraduate student, graduate student and faculty population. While the majority of functions at UCSB operate during the traditional “40-hour” workweek, H&RS operates on a 24-hour daily basis throughout the year. The scope of the services offered can be compared to those of operating a small city. The business of H&RS involves the entire range of services associated with the administration of that small city, including physical and capital planning, maintenance and upkeep, community supervision and safety, and support services.
