Independence Made Easy.

Come live at Tropicana Villas Upperclassmen Apartments close to the UCSB campus and the beach.

It’s easy to move in. You don’t have to buy, move or store furniture. Our 2-bedroom/2-bath apartments come fully furnished. Lease by the bed OR rent a whole apartment. Move in with friends or we’ll help you find roommates. Choose a 10-month lease so you don’t have to pay rent over the summer. And with our flat, monthly utility payment, there are no surprises. All utilities — water, trash, electric, and high speed Wifi are included. Learn more.


  • In addition to all the fun I had living at the Villas, something that I also think is important no matter where I live is customer service, and the relationship a tenant has with the property manager. Whenever I had a problem with anything, like the water not running right, or being locked out, there was always someone around or someone I could call to help me out, and they were always fast about it, which I really appreciated. Overall, living at the Villas was an awesome experience.

  • We really had a welcoming, community feeling to our building which made it that much better to come back to every day after class or work. The Villas at Tropicana has really felt like a home to me and I can't wait to come back for another year.

  • I loved spending my senior year at UCSB in a nice apartment that was in Isla Vista but wasn't submersed in the party atmosphere.
