- On Dec. 3, the university will end its contract with Trumba, the vendor that provides the calendar on the central homesite. This means colleges and departments will no longer have a method to syndicate events across multiple UC Davis websites. Pages that use SiteFarm have a built-in events system, and instructions for using that can be found here. Any offices with event pages that would like to be listed on the UC Davis homesite should contact the Office of Strategic Communications’ web team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Open Enrollment is Oct. 26-Nov. 17. More information is available on the HR website.
- The Economist — The UC Davis Library has purchased a license making this publication available online, free, to everyone with a ucdavis.edu email address.
- The New York Times — The UC Davis Library purchased an academic license to NYTimes.com for use by all students, faculty, staff, clinicians and emeriti of UC Davis and UC Davis Health. If you have an authenticated UC Davis login, you have complimentary access. Note: Faculty and staff may periodically be prompted to renew; if you are a student, your access should remain active at all times while you are enrolled.
- Annual asbestos notification (March 20, 2023) — This notice is required by the California Health and Safety Code, notifying all employees of the presence of asbestos in campus buildings constructed prior to 1979.

- UC Davis WarnMe and Aggie Alert messages provide faculty, staff, students and others with timely information and instructions during emergencies or other urgent situations that may directly affect their well-being. WarnMe messages and Aggie Alerts are distributed by email and text message and also posted to the Everbridge Mobile App and UC Davis’ official Facebook and Twitter accounts. Tests are scheduled three times during each academic year.
- Please review your contact information, and update it as necessary.
- Employee and student contact information — Your UC Davis email addresses are included in the WarnMe system automatically; you can add mobile numbers and other email addresses.
- Parents, vendors, contractors and others — You can sign up for text notifications only for the Davis campus and three other university locations (Bodega Marine Laboratory, Tahoe Environmental Research Center, and Continuing and Professional Education).
- Mobile app (limited to people with UC Davis email addresses) — The app includes a number of safety features and is an important option for UC Davis affiliates with international phone numbers, as WarnMe does not send text messages to international numbers. Learn more about the Everbridge Mobile App and how to download it.

- Blood drives are held on campus each quarter. Check back for the dates for future events.
The Big Shift is the campuswide heating system conversion project, whereby steam lines are being replaced with hot water lines. Heat exchangers in buildings will draw heat off the hot water, to heat the buildings, just like we do now with steam. The hot water system will use electricity (a renewable resource) to heat the water, instead of natural gas, a fossil fuel, that is used in the steam system. The hot water system will use less energy, because the water need not be heated to boiling (for steam), and will be safer to maintain. Current road and path closures are listed here, along with other project links:
- Prohibition on political campaign intervention — The University of California strongly supports public and civic engagement by members of the university community, in both their professional and personal capacities. At the same time, we must adhere to the restrictions outlined in this advisory from the Office of General Counsel.
