Residence Halls

Residence Halls

Independence. Convenience. Comfort. That's what living at PennWest California is all about.

Forget about traditional "rooms." At PennWest California, students enjoy spacious rooms in buildings designed with their needs and lifestyle in mind. 

If you're a new first-year student, we do require that you live in the residence halls for your first four (4) semesters — not including winter and summer terms — unless you are commuting from the home of your parent(s) or legal guardian(s) within a 50-mile radius of campus.

Please review the student housing application fee policy.

Upperclass students also enjoy the convenience of living in our main campus residence halls, so they can walk to classes, the fitness center, the library or campus events.
