What are my first-year choices?
Freshmen live in a variety of residence halls that include Tercero 3, our first to earn the top national rating for being sustainable.

What if I’m not a freshman or transfer?
After your first year at UC Davis, the options expand. Learn more on our community page.
Will I need a car?
Most students either bicycle or walk to and from campus, and we have a great student-operated Unitrans bus service free for UC Davis undergraduate students that serves the entire city of Davis. By the way, freshmen living on campus aren’t allowed to bring their cars or purchase a campus parking permit. Check out the campus parking program for residents or parking information for those living off campus.
