To our Pardall Center Community:

We recognize the importance of Pardall Center as a community resource for students and the Isla Vista community. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Pardall Center is currently operating as a distribution site to support the ongoing needs of the Isla Vista community during this time.

Our distribution site hours are:

  • Mondays and Thursdays: 12-3PM
  • Thursdays: 12-4PM

We are currently providing:

  • reusable cloth face masks,
  • reusable thermometers, and
  • free printing/scanning services

All distribution efforts are in adherence to COVID-19 safety precautions, and we ask community members for your cooperation while accessing these items. Please maintain a minimum of six feet distance, wear a mask, and use the available hand sanitation station on-site.

In addition, the Isla Vista Tenants Union and Legal Resource Center continue to provide access to legal services remotely, Monday through Friday. Please contact the IVTU/LRC Office for assistance at (805) 968-6704.
