First-Year Residence Halls
With tree-filled courtyards, cottages, and two-story buildings, Clark provides an ideal outdoor backdrop for activity and relaxation. Students socialize on the interconnecting balconies and stairways or retreat to the large, grassy center of the complex known as Clark Beach. This lawn beckons the 250 residents to play Frisbee or study in the sun. Most of the residents are first-year students, while some transfer and returning students also live here. Men and women occupy different buildings.
Clark evokes the feeling of a village. The three or four-room suites share common bathrooms. Most rooms are double occupancy, with a handful accommodating three students. Clark is the residence hall closest to the shuttle stop and the dining commons.
Nearly half of the first year students call Page home. If you know alumni/ae who have lived in this residence hall, you have probably heard their nostalgic enthusiasm for their first-year experience.
Page’s traditional layout, in which all the rooms open to a long, central hallway, offers many opportunities to meet others and forge new friendships. The hallways are convenient for gathering a late-night pizza party, sharing ideas about a class project or simply enjoying some casual conversation. Page is located near the library, the post office and Westmont’s administrative offices.
Men and women live in separate sections and plan creative social activities together each semester. All the rooms house three students.
