Room/Apartment Selection

Approximately 3 weeks prior to move-in, rooms will be released to our online Room Selection system in batches. You will be notified in the order that contracts were received. You'll be able to "shop" for a room by clicking on Room Selection at the top of the page, under the Application/Contract tab. Anyone who does not select a specific room or roommate will be automatically allocated by Tropicana Student Living, based on your preferences and the order your contract was received.

  • 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.
