Book Bank

We are sorry to announce the A.S. Book Bank will be closed for Spring 2020 in order to slow the spread of COVID-19. Please DM on Instagram @asbookbank or email bookbank@as.ucsb.edu if you have any questions. If you currently have a book or iClicker out, don’t worry. Simply return them in the fall. We hope professors are exhibiting maximum flexibility especially in regards to textbook costs for this quarter and hope that most, if not all, your required materials can be found on Gauchospace.

Business and Finance Committee

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Finance and Business Committee will not be meeting for the remainder of the school year.  As an alternative to in-person meetings and office hours, the following two forms were created:

If you were funded for a Spring Quarter event, please fill out this form: https://asfb.as.ucsb.edu/spring-response-form

  • This form will let Associated Students know if you cancelled or postponed your event.  You can also request for a reimbursement for said event or have the funds be rolled over to the next fiscal year which starts on July 1, 2020.

If you are requesting funds for the remainder of the year, please fill out this form: https://asfb.as.ucsb.edu/spring-request-form/

  • If you are asking for a reallocation of previously approved funds (from events prior to Spring Quarter), you can use this form.

As of right now, the online requisition form is still in progress.  As soon as that is available, it will be posted on Associated Students’ homepage.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at ralmario@as.ucsb.edu.
