Directions for Visitors to the CURRENT Lab
Santa Barbara is located on the beautiful Pacific coast, about 95 miles
(150 km) north of Los Angeles and 320 miles (500 km) south of San
Francisco. It can be reached from either city via the scenic US Highway
101. The computer science department and all faculty offices are in
Harold Frank Hall (formerly Engineering I). See the map below for the
Engineering area of the UCSB campus and the map at the end of this page
for the surrounding areas and approach roads.
- Coming from the south on northbound Highway 101, take the
Airport/UCSB exit #104B onto Highway 217. This exit is past all 12 Santa
Barbara exits and follows Turnpike and Patterson exits in Goleta. Drive
2 miles (3 km), keeping in the left lane, until you reach the UCSB east
entrance roundabout at the end of the freeway. Turn right at the
roundabout, stay in the left lane, and turn left into the east campus
parking structure (Lot 10). Parking permits can be purchased from
automatic dispensers located inside the structure by the elevators.
Computer Science is in Harold Frank Hall, and faculty offices are spread
across floors 1, 2, 3, and 5. My office (Ben Zhao) is in HFH 1123,
and Prof. Heather Zheng is in HFH 1121.
- Coming from the north on southbound Highway 101, take the
Storke/UCSB exit #108, turning right onto Storke Road. Drive south
toward the ocean, away from the mountains, for 1 mile (2 km), past three
traffic lights, to the fourth traffic light at the end of Storke Road.
Turn left onto El Colegio and drive 1 mile (2 km) to the UCSB west
entrance. Where the road branches and turns right, take a left turn onto
Stadium Road. Proceed until the stop sign at the end of Stadium Road,
turn right onto Mesa Road. At the third traffic light, turn right into
the east campus parking structure (Lot 10). Parking permits can be
purchased from automatic dispensers located inside the structure, next
to the elevators.
- From Santa Barbara Airport, drive south on Moffet Place toward the
ocean, away from the mountains, for about 1/2 mile (1 km). When you see
the Highway 217 bridge, turn left onto the on-ramp to Highway 217. Once
on Highway 217, keep left and proceed as in paragraph (1) above.
