Campus Safety

Santa Barbara is a safe and peaceful community and the campus has proven to be extremely safe.

Santa Barbara City College has taken numerous steps to ensure student safety, including 24-hour security coverage; highly visible security officers; adequate lighting on campus and in parking lots; alarm systems; emergency phones located throughout campus; and direct communication with the Santa Barbara Police Department.

Security escorts are available to students day and night, and a night shuttle offers rides to students between East and West Campus.
