Southwestern College

We have a number of resources available to assist homeless students.

Shower Facilities

Shower Facilities for Homeless Students:  Shower facilities are located in the SWC Field House, Building 1700, Room H 103 (women) and H107 (men) on the Chula Vista campus.  Shower facilities are open to use by homeless students from Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm during the fall and spring semesters.  During winter and summer sessions, shower facilities are open during the hours of operation of the Field House.  Please call 619-216-6626 for more information.


Enrollment Priority

Enrollment Priority for Homeless Students: Students under the age of 25 who are homeless when they attend SWC are eligible for priority enrollment.  A student needs to be able to verify that they are homeless by either: (1) a letter from a homeless services provider; (2) a letter from a federal TRIO program; or, (3) verification from Financial Aid.  The student would take this documentation to the Admissions & Records Office to be granted enrollment priority.  For more information, please contact Angel Salazar in the Financial Aid Office at (619) 421-6700 x5255 or

Liaison for Homeless Students

College Liaison for Homeless Students: Please contact Angel Salazar in the Financial Aid Office at (619) 421-6700 x5255 or for more information on Financial Aid eligibility and support for homeless students.
