Isla Vista is an unincorporated community and census-designated place in Santa Barbara County, California in the United States. As of the 2010 census, it had a population of 23,096. The majority of residents are college students at nearby University of California, Santa Barbara (located to the East of the community) or at Santa Barbara City College. The beach-side community lies on a flat plateau about 30 feet (9 m) in elevation, separated from the beach by a bluff. Many paths connect the town to the beach. Isla Vista enjoys a Mediterranean climate and often has slightly less precipitation than either Santa Barbara or the adjacent community of Goleta. Isla Vista is located on a south-facing portion of the Santa Barbara County coast, between two small peninsulas, Coal Oil Point and Campus Point, in view of the Channel Islands.

Isla Vista is notable for its unique student and beach culture, cultivated by a population largely made up of UCSB and Santa Barbara City College students. Isla Vista's small size and proximity to UCSB foster a strong sense of community, and students generally run into many people whom they know, be it from classes or otherwise. With warm days year-round, Isla Vista teems with hundreds of students, who enjoy sunbathing, surfing, soccer, frisbee, and other recreational activities to escape the rigors of academic life. The strong beach culture is also an important facet of the town's identity. Residents who live on Del Playa Drive often climb from their homes down the cliffs to the beach to surf or relax on the beach, and everyone who lives in Isla Vista is within minutes of the beach by foot. Isla Vista is a unique community in which a positive and energetic atmosphere prevails. The youthful enthusiasm, partying, outdoor festivals, and a generally upbeat environment have come to be synonymous with Isla Vista. Due to the large student population, coffee shops and local businesses are usually busy well past midnight, with some buzzing until 2am every night. Businesses often stay open 24 hours around finals week for students to study there or take a break from studying. Further contributing to the quality of life, the principal mode of transportation to and from class and around town in Isla Vista is the bicycle or skateboard, rather than the car. Bicycles dominate the streets of Isla Vista, with students riding to and from campus, and wetsuit-wearing riders transiting to local beaches with surfboards in their arms.
