Meet Your Community Assistants

 

 

Villas

At the Villas there are Community Assistants (CAs) and other staff members who live on site. Get to know them and discover all the great things going on at the Villas and Isla Vista area. Having roommate issues? Your CA can help you forge a roommate agreement. Lock yourself out after the Trop office is closed? Call the CA On Duty phone for a lock-out key. Noisy neighbors? Your CA can mediate. CAs also host fun recreational and educational events to help you meet your neighbors. Say "hi!" when you see them around!

Hello! My name is Anjanette, I'm an English major at SBCC student transferring to CSU Channel Islands in the Spring. As a Santa Barbara native, I love the ocean and can be found chilling on the beach with friends. As the Programming Coordinator, I look forward to all the programs and community involvement residents, RAs, and CAs have in store. Be sure to come to VSO if you have a program you'd like your CAs to put on.

Testimonials

  • 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.
