Resources for Remote Learning


Internet Access & Technology Help

Chromebooks

Chromebooks may be available for students who do not have access to a working laptop. They are being provided by the Student Needs Advising Center (SNAC). If you are in need of a chromebook, fill out the waitlist.

UCSB Information Technology

Visit this site for questions related to UCSB’s technology. This is where you can also send an IT Support ticket.

Tip! Read up on IT Security!

International Student Access

Some international students may have difficulties accessing some UCSB licensed resources. The campus is working on a more robust solution for this issue. We hope to have a solution in place in the next two to three weeks. In the meantime, we strongly suggest that you install the campus VPN client, Pulse Secure Campus VPN, and use that to make accessing these online resources more reliable. Information on installing and using Pulse VPN is available at: https://www.it.ucsb.edu/network-infrastructure-services/pulse-secure-campus-vpn

Internet Providers

Some internet providers are providing free/discounted (limited) access to students and families who qualify. Examples include:

Altice Advantage Internet

Charter Communications

Cox Communications

Spectrum

UCSB Housing, Dining, & Auxiliary Enterprises provides an updated list here.

You can also use EveryoneOn to find a low-cost provider in your area or learn more about the benefits of eduroam.
