UCSB is committed to serving all students coming from diverse backgrounds and life situations, including those who took time off before going to school, are transferring at an age older than most students, have families, or are re-entering.

The NTSRC, located in the Student Resource Building, provides a space to study, eat, relax, or hang-out, as well as staff to guide you to campus and community resources and help manage the challenges associated with achieving your academic goals. The center offers study tables, couches, lockers to store your belongings, a coffee maker, mini fridge, and microwave for mealtimes, and best of all, a community of other non-traditional students! Stop by to study, relax, or connect with others. In addition to the physical space of the center, located in SRB 1109, the NTSRC offers several events throughout the quarter.

The Non-Traditional Student Resource Center (NTSRC) is a home for undergraduate students who are over 24 years old (25+), graduate students who are over 28 years old (29+), students with dependents, or re-entering students.
