Dormitory Facts

In addition to the news regarding SBCC ranking sixth in UC transfers among the “113 community colleges statewide,” it should be known that only 11 of those colleges have a dormitory for their students.

Also, those community colleges that do provide dorms are in rural areas. The proposed dormitory on West Beach will house 1,500 students in an established residential area which is adjacent to waterfront activities enjoyed by all residents of Santa Barbara. And, no need to point out, these will not be students from our community but rather those from other states and nations.
