The College of Creative Studies is located on UCSB's campus, a few minutes north of the city of Santa Barbara and only 92 miles north of Los Angeles. CCS stands on the corner of Ucen Road and Channel Islands Road, across from parking lot 3.
To prevent COVID-19 from spreading throughout our community, the CCS building is currently closed to the public. However, we are accepting appointments for outdoor advising conversations with visitors. Please call 805-893-4146 to contact us and see if we are available for walk-ups. We are also available for scheduled conversations via Zoom. Our availability is M-F between 9:00am - 12:00pm and 1:00pm - 4:00pm. To book an appointment in advance, please schedule here.
You are welcome to explore our CCS Virtual Open House page to see a photo tour of the building and to view student/faculty panels for each major.
Information for Students
Starting January 31st, in accord with the return to in-person instruction, the CCS building will return to the same accessibility we had at the end of Fall Quarter. From 7:30am to 10pm, 7 days a week, CCS students will be able to enter the main building and/or the OLT with your Access Card. Masking indoors will continue to be required, along with all other COVID compliance measures.
We understand that this is a change from our typical open building access. We thank you for your understanding as we strive to safeguard the health of our students, faculty, and staff.
