UC Davis students who live on campus benefit from being close to classes and study opportunities, campus dining, and campus life. They also tend to do better academically and are more involved in campus.
All incoming fall quarter freshmen and the first 1000 transfer students who apply are guaranteed housing in Student Housing, provided they meet eligibility requirements and all Student Housing and university deadlines.
All other students should contact Student Housing to inquire about their housing options.

The majority of UC Davis students live off campus. There are many apartments for rent in the City of Davis, from one-person studio apartments to five- or six-person suites. Townhouses, duplexes and houses throughout the city are also available for student rental. Associated Students, University of California, Davis (ASUCD) maintains a list of available community housing and, early every year, hosts Housing Day, an event that brings dozens of local housing managers to campus to introduce their communities to UC Davis students.
