Communications Services, in conjunction with Cox Communications of Santa Barbara, provides cable television service to the UCSB campus.
UCSB Faculty and Staff
Departments and campus services use cable connections for a variety of purposes. These include research and teaching in academic departments, monitoring breaking national and international news for its impact on the campus by administrators, scouting and recruiting for intercollegiate athletics, entertainment and information in the RecCen and Ucen, and cable radio broadcast in the Bookstore.
If you think you might have a use for a cable connection, follow the link below for service and pricing details.
CATV Services for UCSB Residents are no longer available.
Existing residential subscribers may cancel their service at any time prior to September 30, 2020. Communications Services will automatically terminate service and associated billing for all remaining residential subscribers effective October 1, 2020. All subscribers must return the cable TV equipment (Cox box, power supply, and remote control) within one month of service termination or they will incur charges for missing equipment. Equipment returns are accepted at the Communications Services office behind the Public Safety building 574 during business hours.
