UC Seismic Program

UC Santa Barbara Seismic Safety Review

UC Santa Barbara is conducting a comprehensive seismic review of its owned and leased buildings across the campus to better understand their seismic resiliency.

This current evaluation is part of a proactive UC-wide effort launched last year to assess buildings across the University. It supports UC Santa Barbara’s efforts to develop a strategy for buildings to meet UC’s current seismic standards.

UC Seismic Ratings

The University of California, in collaboration with the California Department of General Services and California State University, has developed a system of seismic performance ratings based on the existing California buildings code. Buildings are assessed for earthquake resiliency and assigned a rating. The rating levels are:

I – IV

Seismic Safety Policy Compliant

V

Requires Further Evaluation and, if Confirmed, Must be Addressed in Order of Priority

VI

High-Priority for Correction

VII

Must be Unoccupied and Access-Restricted

For more detail about the ratings and how they were developed, please see UC Seismic Safety Policy Appendix A: Expected Seismic Performance Levels.

UC Seismic Policy

The University of California updated its Seismic Safety Policy in 2017.
