Housing Options

Student Housing Official Second Year Program

Student Housing and Dining Services is happy to announce that we will be offering a limited second year housing option for the 2018-19 academic year. The location for our second year program is being discussed and will be available in January. This option is available to a limited number of first year freshman currently residing in the residence halls. Students will be emailed through their UC Davis email account in January after returning from winter break with more information.

West Village

West Village combines sophisticated comforts with environmentally thoughtful design, allowing residents to reduce their reliance on cars, limit energy consumption and enjoy the benefits of the local climate in a healthy environment. The West Village neighborhood offers three apartment locations:

Community Apartments and Houses

The Davis community offers thousands of rental options every year, including apartments, rooms-for-rent, houses, and studios. Most students look for online listings, visit community apartments (either online or in person), use Facebook, and—mostly—network with each other to decide where to live.

Meal Plan Options

Voluntary Meal Plans

Students don't have to live in the residence halls again to have a campus meal plan! UC Davis Dining Services offers a voluntary meal plan for UC Davis students who do not live in the residence halls or SHA.

Residential Meal Plans

Students who live in Student Housing their second year will receive a residence hall meal plan or SHA meal plan, depending on where they live, just like their first year.

Renters Insurance Option

Any renter should consider acquiring renters insurance, whether they live in a residence hall, an apartment, or a house. UC Davis recommends GradGuardTM Renters Insurance for all students.

Why Renters Insurance Is Valuable

If your laptop or other valuables are stolen or damaged, you are responsible for replacing them, not the university. Renters Insurance provides valuable protection if your personal belongings are stolen or damaged as a result of a covered event, including* laptop computers, smart phones, bicycles, game consoles, textbooks, clothing and other personal items. Renters Insurance also protects you financially for unintentional damage to your university housing or apartment or bodily injury for which you are liable.

*Coverage varies by plan; refer to your renters insurance policy for coverage specifics; the above list reflects the coverage provided by the GradGuardTM Renters Insurance plan.

Students who live in Student Housing (residence halls or SHA) automatically receive protection under GradGuardTM Renters Insurance program unless they decline coverage during the Student Housing Application Process or miss any application deadlines.
