Housing at UC Davis

Student Housing operates two types of housing: residence halls and apartments. 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 and cooperative communities 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.

Capital Projects

In response to many variables, including increased enrollment, changing priorities, building maintenance, and environmental responsibility, Student Housing continuously explores new developmental possibilities. Several Capital Projects are currently under way. Project scope may range from improvements for existing buildings to further development and expansion of housing facilities.
