Freshman Housing Guarantee

All incoming fall quarter freshman students are guaranteed housing in the residence halls for their first year provided they are registered as a full time student, are under the age of 24 and meet all Student Housing and university deadlines.

Students entering the university in winter or spring quarter should contact Student Housing to inquire about their housing options.

Second year housing is generally available; but is dependent on first year student enrollment and will be offered if available. Notification of availability will be provided during winter quarter of each year.

Although some second-year students want to take advantage of another year of living in UC Davis Student Housing, the UC Davis tradition is that most students choose to live off campus for their second year. To assist with the transition to community housing, Student Housing hosts programs during fall and winter quarter to help residence hall students prepare to seek housing in the Davis community. Programs discuss how, where, and when to search for housing, and teach students how to understand rental agreements.
