Living on campus adds a measure of convenience to your life and helps familiarize students with the campus. Over 9,000 students live in Student Housing each year, including over 94 percent of incoming freshman students.

All incoming fall quarter freshmen and transfer students are guaranteed housing in Student Housing, provided they meet eligibility requirements and all Student Housing and university deadlines. Freshmen and Transfer students are guaranteed one year of housing. See the Student Housing website for more information about the housing guarantee. All other students should contact Student Housing to inquire about their housing options.

Residence Halls

There are many residence halls at UC Davis, located in three different Student Housing areas: Segundo, Tercero, and Cuarto. In each of the residence hall complexes, students and staff create and maintain an environment conducive to personal growth and educational achievement. Academic and social events are held many times throughout the year. An Academic Advising Center, a Computer Center, convenience store and a dining hall (dining commons) are located in each area.

Rooms are furnished with a bed and mattress, desk and chair, bookcase, chest of drawers, closet or wardrobe, study lamp, and wastebasket and recycling basket for each resident. Furnished common rooms in each residence hall are available for studying, relaxing and hanging out with friends.
Cost is based on room occupancy (single, double, or triple) and meal plan choice. Rates are available at http://housing.ucdavis.edu/fees. Each year's rates are subject to approval by the UC Regents, are typically finalized in May, and are effective for the following academic year.

Incoming first-year freshmen students are eligible to live in the residence halls. Some years, as space allows, incoming first-year transfer students may also live in the residence halls. Housing online applications will be available to incoming freshmen students after they submit their Statement of Intent to Register (SIR). All other students are encouraged to call Student Housing to inquire about housing availability.

Students who require a special accommodation or consideration, including a medical condition, disability, dietary requirement or other circumstance will be able to submit their request and supporting documentation as a part of the residence hall application process.

Visit the Student Housing website to learn more about the residence halls and how and when to apply for housing. Call or email Student Housing with any questions.
