Central Receiving

Westmont College Central Receiving is located at the Physical Plant.

All shipments should go to Central Receiving except:
* Bookstore
* Small package carriers to Mailing Services
* Paper to Reprographics
* Dining Commons
* Installations as directed by Campus Planning, Physical Plant, or Procurement.

Incoming large shipments/items will be processed by Central Receiving staff and delivered by them to the end user departments, except in cases where they determine a direct delivery to another part of the campus is warranted.

All orders placed should use the Purchase Order Number Convention. This will greatly assist Central Receiving, the campus Post Office, Procurement, and/or the Business Office when there are questions about any part of your order/invoice process.

If a shipment will weigh over 50 lbs and/or is coming in 5 or more boxes, it should be shipped to Central Receiving rather than Mailing Services. Please ask your vendor to put the following on the "Ship To" of their packing slip AND bill of lading:

Westmont College / YOUR DEPARTMENT
Attn: Central Receiving
955 La Paz Road
Santa Barbara CA 93108

Buyers should notify Central Receiving when placing an order that will be delivered there. This should be done using the Central Receiving Notification web form. This puts your order information in a database available to many people who can assist you!

When placing orders, please be sure to send vendors information they should forward to the freight carrier they use. This is most easily accomplished by sending them the "Shipments - Via Truck" link, or a copy of that page.

If you have any questions about your delivery, the primary contact in Central Receiving is

If your order was placed for you by the Office of Procurement (usually installations), contact Bill Groeneveld.
