UCSB is located a few minutes north of the city of Santa Barbara, only 92 miles north of Los Angeles. With the recently improved Santa Barbara Airport (SBA) just next door to the campus, UCSB is easy to reach by air.
The Santoro Lab is located in the Marine Biotechnology Laboratory near Campus Point. Note that this is NOT the Marine Science Research Buildling. Contact your host to arrange a parking permit in advance or discuss other transit options to campus. Parking may also be available within Coastal Access spots in Lot 6, though use of these spots is discouraged for University business.
