Overlooking UCSB’s beautiful Lagoon and within feet of the Pacific Ocean, Corwin Pavilion is one of the largest and most versatile facilities on campus. It is the ideal venue for any conference, lecture, banquet or vendor fair due to its size and flexibility. With almost 6,000 square feet of open meeting space, Corwin accommodates various set-up styles and a soundproof divider that allows for simultaneous sessions. Just outside the door is Lagoon Plaza and a convenient location for receptions or banquets with a stunning view of UCSB Lagoon
The UCen’s seven meeting rooms can be reserved individually for a single meeting or altogether for breakout rooms as part of a larger conference. Most rooms have stunning views of the UCSB Lagoon and many are decorated with photos depicting the history of Santa Barbara.
