Tropicana Villas apartments are fully furnished and the student community offers amenities such as a heated pool, on-site laundry, parking for sale, as well as access to all amenities at sister properties, Tropicana Gardens and Tropicana Del Norte, which includes 24-hour quiet study lounges, Cardio Room, Fitness Center, and a 27-seat movie theater.

Competition for IV apartment space can be fierce so it pays to plan ahead and get the apartment you want. Sign now through your MyTropAccount and save your spot for the 2017-2018 school year!
Flu Season
Tips to Keep Trop Healthy
1. Consider getting your flu shot: these are offered at local pharmacies like CVS and at Student Health on UCSB Campus.

2. Remember singing the ABC song twice while washing your hands in kindergarten? Now is the time to start singing again.

3. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water (especially before you eat). Carry a bottle of hand sanitizer with you.

4. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue if you cough or sneeze. If you don't have a tissue, sneeze into your elbow. Be conscious about not touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Don't take a sip out of someone's cup.

5. Keep a household disinfectant like Lysol or Clorox wipes on hand and use them to clean your doorknobs, remote controls, phones, keyboards etc.

6. Don't cuddle up to your BFF if they are ill! Symptoms of the flu include fever, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, chill and fatigue. Keep your distance and show your love by running errands for them.
