Off-Campus Housing in Davis

There are a variety of housing options in the city of Davis, including apartments, studios, rooms-for-rent in houses, and cooperatives. Generally, leases in Davis run from September 1 through August 31, and the renewal season begins in January. Vacancy rates in Davis are typically very low so it’s important to begin a search for housing early in the calendar year when housing is still available.

Community Housing Listing

The Associated Students of UC Davis (ASUCD) maintain the Community Housing Listing (CHL), an online collection of available housing opportunities for UC Davis students. The website is a meet-up place where students who have housing but need roommates can connect with students who are seeking housing.

Local Housing Listing

Many students visit a variety of housing options in-person before picking one, but for those who can’t, there are a variety of privately-operated websites, including Craigslist, and two local Davis newspapers, that provide housing listings.

In addition to Davis, the nearby cities of Woodland, Dixon, Winters, and West Sacramento offer housing, and Sacramento itself is a large metropolitan area with a variety of neighborhoods and housing options. These cities are, generally, more affordable that Davis, but they are several miles out, likely limiting transportation to automobile or public transit.
