Orchard Park Redevelopment

Family Housing

Built in 1964, Orchard Park served as apartment-style housing for students with families until 2015 when the facility was closed to prepare for redevelopment. In June 2015, the Student Family Housing Redevelopment Committee considered the future of student family housing at UC Davis and issued a report recommending principles related to future student family housing. The Orchard Park Redevelopment Status Report issued March 2, 2016 recommended redevelopment of the existing Orchard Park.
