Back to Communities

Goleta is a town with many faces. As a bedroom community for Santa Barbara, it is home to families supportive of their schools, churches, parks and community organizations. As a “college town” it supports a large population of students enrolled at the sprawling campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara. As a hub of the high-tech industry, it serves as a base for cutting-edge computer-related businesses. Originally home to a large Native American village, Goleta was visited by European explorers beginning in the 16th century. The community began its modern-day history as a center for agriculture and vast ranches, saw a period of oil and gas production, then served as the location of a military airfield during wartime. That airfield has evolved into the current Santa Barbara Airport. Today, Goleta is home to around 55 thousand residents residing in condominiums and modest single family homes in neighborhoods and a few gated communities.
