Newman House
6503 Madrid Rd.
Isla Vista CA 93117

Although Newman has nine separate apartments (six two-bedroom/one-bath units and three studios), Newman feels like a community. There is no meal plan for the Newman building but some members participate in optional potlucks. The fire pit in front, gardens and composting system, and mural painting projects on Newman's walls, allows members to be creative and communal. But if that's not your thing, there are enough private space in Newman to make it what you want it to be. The House charge for Newman's 27-30 residents covers laundry, parking, water, trash, gas, electricity and cable internet. Newman House is named after Patti Newman, significant contributor and driving force behind the creation of the Santa Barbara Housing Co-op.

**Newman House was renovated Summer 2014 with new electrical, plumbing, floors, walls, patio, cabinets, and more!
