Meet Your Community Assistants

At the Villas there are 2 Community Assistants (CAs) 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!


Lauren P.

Lauren is a transfer student from Lodi, CA and is going to be in her last year here at UCSB and will be receiving her degree in Anthropology, even though she would like to be a physical therapist. She enjoys watching/playing sports, pizzaaa (she works at Woodstocks too), spending time with friends, family, and her girlfriend, listening to music, grilling, sunset watching, and working out. Lauren is very excited to meet all the Villas residents this year!


Marcos R.

Marcos is entering his 4th year at UCSB. He is currently pursuing an undergraduate degree in Anthropology. He is from a small town in Southern California called Temecula. He is into photography and food. He is always down to get food late at night so don’t be shy if you ever need a late night snack.



  • 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.
