Parking in the vicinity
Westmont operates under a Conditional Use Permit (C.U.P.) with the county of Santa Barbara. The C.U.P. prohibits students from having their vehicles parked in the "vicinity" of the college, while they are physically on the campus--unless the vehicle is parked at the student's own residence. The vicinity includes public roads in Montecito, the Montecito Covenant Church and Cold Spring School parking lots. It also includes the business areas on Coast Village Road, and nearby streets (See Vehicle Regulations).
