Student Housing operates three types of housing: residence halls, campus apartments, and cooperatives. In addition, Student Housing partners with several private apartment complexes to operate a Transfer-student specific apartment program called Student Housing Apartments (SHA).
Each area and its included buildings are unique in character, combining with the residents to create a diverse, exciting community. All Student Housing buildings are located on university property, and all except the Cuarto area residence halls are located on the main campus. Privatized apartments are also located on campus, and are operated by private management in accordance to agreements with UC Davis. SHA apartments may be located on or off-but-near campus.
In response to many variables, including increased enrollment, changing priorities, building maintenance, and environmental responsibility, Student Housing continuously explores new developmental possibilities. Project scope may range from improvements for existing buildings to further development and expansion of housing facilities.
