Housing Sign-Ups for Next Year Proxy Authorizations
What if I cannot attend my Selection Event?
The proxy authorization is a way for you to authorize one or more students to to select your specific room (or apartment) in your absence. This may be helpful for athletes, and any others, whose schedules conflict with the Selection Event for their qualified group request.
In the event that not one member of your group can attend to make the selection, the group members should authorize at least one other student to attend and select on your behalf:
- A proxy must be authorized in advance with the online Proxy Authorization form, and he/she must be a currrent Westmont student.
- The proxy must attend your Selection Event at your sign-up time, and you are responsible for communicating your group's selection time to the proxy.
Do NOT wait until the last minute to submit the online Proxy Authorization form because a technical snafu may thwart your request. Electrical outages and network malfunctions have occurred in previous years.
If you and your group fail to authorize a proxy in time for your selection, OR your proxy fails to appear to select your room or apartment, no housing will be reserved for you AND you will forfeit the ability to reserve that type of housing. You and each member of your group will need to START OVER with the Sign-Ups request application.
