Re-Applicants for Spring semester
Former Westmont students who re-apply to Westmont may be considered along with returning students for the purposes of housing, rather than new students.
Re-applicants should communicate their spring housing requests to the Housing Office as soon as possible. Those who are aware of specific openings that will be available in the residence halls may try to arrange to fill such an opening with the current resident(s). Requests must be mutual to be considered.. Resident Directors survey their fall semester residents in early November, and such mutual requests need to be in place by November 1 before other returning students are assigned housing.
Re-applicants who do not reserve spring housing by mutual request with current campus resident(s) may submit the online Housing Request form in addition to the Acceptance of Offer of Admission and Housing Application (which is submitted online to the Admissions Office). Housing and Residence Life will follow the location preferences and priorities on the request form as much as possible, and assign according to space available.
Requests to live off-campus locally and commute (housing code:OCL) can be problematic because Westmont must limit the number of students who reside off-campus, in accordance with Santa Barbara County regulations. Re-applicants should not assume they may live off-campus, or make any rental commitments unless off-campus is granted by the Housing Office. Re-applicants should contact Housing as soon as possible due to our off-campus limit. Living off-campus must be approved in writing by the Housing Office. See Requirements for Commuters.
If we are on a waitlist basis, Housing will document the date of the request.

Spring housing and meal plan assignments are confirmed by being posted on the Student Profile. When off-campus local housing is approved, the Housing Director will also confirm it by email. Re-applicants may not be assigned housing until January, but if possible the assignment will be made and posted earlier.
