Fall-To-Spring (Mid-Year Transition)
Most residents in Westmont housing stay in their same on-campus room or Ocean View apartment without any changes at mid-year, but there are changes for some. Many students return to college housing from away-abroad programs, and the college welcomes dozens of new transfers and re-applicants in January.
In November, on-campus and Ocean View residents are required to make their Spring housing declaration with their Resident Assistant (RA). Residents declare either "No Room Change," or "Vacate My Room," or "Refer to My Online Request." Such declarations are essential for determining where openings can be confirmed to house other students.
Residents are assumed to remain in the same room unless they say "Vacate," or they have alreadybeen approved by the Housing Office for a different housing assignment for the Spring semester.
NOTE: when Fall housing assignments are recorded and displayed on the Student Profile, Spring housing assignments usually duplicate the Fall assignments--subject to change, of course. When Fall residents plan to vacate in December [e.g. due to graduation, withdrawal, transfer to another institution, or study away-abroad in the Spring], Housing and Residence Life will seek to fill the openings in response to housing needs and stated preferences by students.
Students who are away-abroad during the Fall semester are notified when the online request forms have been activated for the Spring semester. Information and request forms away-abroad students during the Fall semester can be found under:
