All About Moving to Escondido

Off-Campus Housing

Housing is one of the most basic concerns for students relocating to Escondido to attend Westminster Seminary California. The Office of Admissions provides extensive housing resources for our students.

Local Apartments

There are numerous apartment complexes within walking and driving distance from the WSC campus. Students have lived in several of these complexes and recommend them to new students.

Alternative Housing

The Office of Admissions maintains a list of local rooms, guest homes, and houses for rent through private homeowners. These opportunities are often less expensive than apartments.

Roommates

A list of interested individuals seeking roommates and shared housing situations is part of the alternative housing list.

Purchasing a house

The Office of Admissions has a list of recommended realtors.

Change of Address

When students arrive in the area they should notify the Office of Admissions of their new address and contact information at admissions@wscal.edu.

Driver’s License and Vehicle Registration

The State of California requires all new residents to obtain a CA driver’s license within 10 days of relocating to California and register their vehicles within 20 days of relocating. Failure to comply with these requirements will result in monetary penalties through the CA Department of Motor Vehicles.
