The UCSB Office of Facilities Management records contain correspondence, maps, surveys, easements, deeds, lease agreements,
photographs, meeting minutes and construction and planning documents pertaining to the facilities development of the University
of California, Santa Barbara, focusing on its current Goleta location. Many of the documents pertain to the establishment
of roads (in particular, Storke, Los Carneros and El Colegio), sewage lines and other utilities. Another portion of the documents
pertain to land acquisitions which resulted in the establishment and maintenance of the Goleta campus, the Devereux Center,
and the Isla Vista Sanitary District.
The University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) began as Santa Barbara State College, and was converted to Santa Barbara
College of the University of California during World War II. Thomas M. Storke, publisher of the Santa Barbara News-Press,
was a dominant advocate for the transition from state college to university status. The original campus location was situated
on land previously occupied by Santa Barbara Junior College, situated on the mesa site. Additional land was located in an
area known as the "Riviera" site.
