Our reserves are now open to limited use by researchers and university-level classes

To apply for Research use: Please plan ahead, as we cannot accept last minute reservations due to the additional requirements for approval. Each researcher or research group leader needs to submit a COVID safety plan (see step 5 below).  This plan must be approved by the UCSB NRS committee before we can approve your reservation.  The UCSB NRS committee meets each week on Thursday morning, so please get your safety plan submitted at least one week, preferably 2 weeks before your requested reservation dates.
