"This isn't just housing, it is about finding a family away from home"


Welcome to Coral Group in Santa Barbara, CA.

We strive to provide quality, comfortable, safe and central housing opportunities in Santa Barbara for international and American students arriving to SBCC & UCSB.

Our housing includes everything students need to live in a home or host family, plus much more, as well as opportunities to be part of the Santa Barbara city life including events, adventures and times to volunteer. 


We encourage all students to follow the dreams that brought them to Santa Barbara and we do the best we can to assist them in reaching their goals.​

Waiting list for FALL 2024 

We are still accepting applications for Fall 2024. Fill out an application and the Coral Group Team will followup if a spot opens up.



cleaning service


We offer cleaning service twice a month to help students maintain a clean home. We know cleaning is not your top priority, so we help out and also support everyone with chores.

We are so much more than just housing! We offer events, hikes, BBQ's for our students, most of them free! We also help students find opportunities to volunteer.


Our property managers, resident assistants live onsite and are available to help at any time. Also, you have access to someone at all times for emergencies.

 Your organization is very professional, caring, and above all, extremely honest and helpful. I am very glad that I had the opportunity to meet all of you. You are great people and it is comforting knowing that even though my son is far away, you are there to help if need be!

I want you to know that Coral Group is such a great group. We had such good moments all together and you are amazing, you organized so many things for us : parties, paddling, hikes, bbq, ... it's there that I met all of my friends. I'm going to miss Summertown house so much... 

Hey Mia, Just wanted to let you know once again how grateful I am for having spent a year with the Coral Group. It was been an awesome journey! I really felt appreciated and feel that I have grown, which was the purpose of the trip. I appreciate everything you, your mom, Karlos have done to make it such a good trip. Hope to see you all again sometime.
