Isla Vista Tenants Union

The best way for tenants to contact us is to schedule a consultation through our website or send us an email.

We are a student run organization that primarily focuses on tenant education and legal counseling.

Isla Vista Tenants Union challenges and transforms unjust housing conditions and housing policies through empowerment-based education, leadership development, and grassroots community organizing. 

IVTU empowers renters by providing them with information about their tenants’ rights, responsibilities, and resources. Our office provides individual counseling aimed at providing the tenant with constructive knowledge and skills to ensure successful tenancies and help in the resolution of tenant-landlord conflict. 

IVTU also has a Tenant Guide that generally covers common questions regarding rental applications; habitability; repairs and damages; rent increases; privacy; roommate problems; subleasing; lease review; moving out; and evictions.
