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
Students and faculty in CCS classes can access the building via their key card/Access card on the side and rear doors. Key card access to the building will be available from 7:30am - 10:00pm. The building will be closed to everyone for cleaning and sanitation at night. 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.
