At its core, Whittier College is a strong and vibrant residential community, comprised of scholars, athletes, artists, performers, volunteers, and leaders, hailing from this country and abroad. Living in Whittier's residential campus community, students will find their pursuit of knowledge enhanced, their range of cultural and social opportunities expanded, and will learn more about themselves and others than ever imagined. In the residence halls, lifelong friendships take root, and the experience can engender a whole new definition of "family" and "home." New first-year and transfer students can get more information about on-campus housing by visiting the Admitted Students page.
