Dear Student:

On behalf of the UCSB community, we are reaching out to all of our current students that are from, or have close connections to Turkey, Syria, and nearby areas impacted by recent earthquakes. We hope this email finds you and your loved ones safe and out of harm’s way. 

Should you need support, our Social Work Services team provides confidential services focused on supporting student health and wellness including complex needs counseling, community referrals, and crisis intervention. You can reach them at 805-893-3087 to set up an appointment.

If you are experiencing short-term financial hardship, please email the Office of Financial Aid through the Financial Crisis Response Team at We will reply to your e-mail with possible funding options for educational related expenses. 

Our thoughts are with you, and we will do all we can to assist during this time. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if there is any support you need.
