Stylish SBCC Student Housing

The Orchid House of Santa Barbara is a beautiful student boarding house nestled among lush gardens and adjacent to the historical landmark of the Fernald Mansion and the Trussell-Winchester Adobe gardens. Our stylish residence consists of two main buildings: the Victorian House and the Carriage House. It offers a safe, private, cozy and relaxing environment; yet, it is just across the street from SBCC Santa Barbara, three blocks from the popular State St., the Harbor and the Marina, the beautiful beaches and the Santa Barbara Amtrak train station. Our Student Residence Hall consists of 8 luxury rooms, a beautiful communal lounge, a stylish dining room and a media room, all designed to make our students’ life as comfortable as their own home. A gourmet breakfast and healthy evening meal are included in our rates as well as free Wi-Fi, cable TV service with Flat-panel TV in each suit and membership to a popular local gym. The Orchid House of Santa Barbara offers a pleasurable and safe accommodation next to Santa Barbara City College to study, relax and feel at home in its charming ambiance.

Our Student Residence Hall has a lot to offer, close to Santa Barbara City College. At the bottom of the pedestrian steps a perfect workout for SBCC athletes.
