happy senior men and women with arms raised

UCSB appreciates the importance of retired staff and faculty to the university, and their status as lifelong members of the UCSB family.  This website is a starting point for UCSB retirees interested in maintaining their link to the UCSB community. You'll also find useful information about services available to retirees and answers to many of your benefits and retirement questions.

The UCSB Retirees Association and the UCSB Emeriti Association invite you to take advantage of their wide variety of programs, resources, and opportunities for fellowship and service to the campus community.
