For those who choose not to stay in the dormitories, the following is
a partial list of hotels in the area. Those who choose to stay off
campus are responsible for making their own reservations, and early
reservations are advised since August is a popular season in Santa
Barbara. Note that Goleta is closer to UCSB than Santa Barbara, but a
car will probably be required to travel between any hotel and the
campus. All prices are subject to change: prices should be confirmed
by calling the individual hotels directly. However, mention CRYPTO
'95 when you are making your reservation and in several of the hotels
you will be eligible for the university rate which can be
significantly less than the normal rates. We are not able to block
rooms in these hotels, so please make reservations as early as
possible. The quality of the hotels range from rather expensive
beach- front resorts to basic inexpensive accommodations. For further
