Housing Guarantee for Students Who Enter UC Davis in Fall Quarter 2022*

Research shows living on campus is correlated with academic success. All incoming freshman and transfer students entering UC Davis for fall quarter 2022 are guaranteed on-campus housing.

Students must meet eligibility requirements and deadlines to qualify for guaranteed housing. Housing is defined as a single bed, and related shared and personal space in a bedroom or suite, for an individual student. Families are not eligible to live in the residence halls or transfer student apartments; students who wish to live with their families should consider applying to live in on-campus family housing, or housing in the Davis community.

Freshman Students

Housing is guaranteed for one year to all incoming fall-quarter 2022 freshman students.

Freshmen must be under the age of 24 to qualify for guaranteed housing. Freshmen will be housed in on-campus Student Housing residence halls their first year.

Second-Year Housing

Freshmen living in the residence halls during their first year at UC Davis will be offered second-year on-campus housing in either the residence halls or apartments on a first-come, first-eligible basis, depending on availability.

Transfer Students

Housing is guaranteed for two years to the first 1000 incoming fall-quarter 2022 transfer students.

Transfer students must be one of the first 1000 transfer students to sign a housing contract to qualify for guaranteed housing. Transfer students will be housed in on-campus Student Housing apartments their first and second years.

Additional housing may be offered to incoming transfer students after the first 1000 signed contracts but this housing is not guaranteed and will be offered on a first-come, first-eligible basis.

Second-Year Housing

The second year of housing is guaranteed only to those who live in on-campus Student Housing apartments their first year and maintain continuous residence in on-campus housing during the academic year. However, transfer students do not need to commit to the second year of housing to live in on-campus Student Housing apartments their first year.
