3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are many paces but they are kind of far, you would need to have a car.

2 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Montecito is just plain outrageously expensive - no matter how you look at it. Most people I know who have lived off campus go a little further into actual Santa Barbara to find their apartments within a student budget!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Most students do not live off campus until senior year. Cost of living in Santa Barbara is extremely high and few close houses are available to students. They are very safe and parking is not an issue. However, off-campus housing is not very big at Westmont College.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Not very many people are able to get off campus housing, and those that do still have to deal with the difficulty of the housing departments rules and regulations.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Rent is super high but the locations and homes are nice
