The firm of Pereira and Luckman originally took on the planning of the University of California, Santa Barbara, Campus in the 1950s; by 1961, however, after the dissolution of that firm, Charles Luckman Associates carried on as the planning consultant to the university. The campus originally contained 409 acres and was located in the town of Goleta, 9 miles west of Santa Barbara, CA. The UC Santa Barbara Campus was previously a World War II-era U.S. Marine base, purchased by the state in 1948.

The campus's entrance lies outside most of Santa Barbara, CA, and is closer to the smaller towns of Isla Vista and Goleta. A strip corridor, however, was annexed by the City of Santa Barbara to the Pacific Ocean; this strip includes land on which the university's West Entrance is located. Like all University of California and California State University Campuses, UC Santa Barbara is its own legal jurisdiction.
