Building Namesake

Primero Complex

Primero Complex

This c. 1959 aerial view shows the Primero Complex of student dormitories formerly located southwest of Russell Blvd and California Ave. Built between 1951 and 1959, they were the first University-built, on-campus dormitories in the entire UC System. When completed, they were named for four long-time faculty members (Charles M. Titus, Louise C. Struve, Elmer H. Hughes, and Samuel H. Beckett) who took special interest in students. In 1997, these dorms were removed and replaced in 1999 by a new complex of four, three-story apartment buildings, which housed married students and transfers. Today, Primero Grove is being used by UC Davis Student Housing and Dining Services to house Students with Families and Single Graduate Students.

Orchard Park Apartments is owned by CHF-Davis I, LLC, a private non-profit housing enterprise. CHF-Davis I, LLC is neither owned nor controlled by the University of California. UC Davis Student Housing and Dining Services is acting as the agent of the owner.
