Campus Housing: Introduction

In 2015-16 more than 9,400 students lived on campus; about 5,250 traditional first-year students (freshmen) lived in residence halls while another 4,150 upper-division undergraduate and graduate students lived in apartments. Altogether, about 29% of the Davis-based students lived on campus in 2015-16.

The LRDP Draft Planning Scenario provides capacity to accommodate more than 90% of enrollment growth in campus housing and 40% of the Davis-based students in campus housing by 2027-28. The Plan provides capacity for an additional 6,200 students in residence halls and apartments on campus, including 1,800 students in residence halls and 4,400 students in apartments.

All but 20% of the total energy demand for the neighborhood is generated on site with solar panels.

The four major residential areas for campus housing, West Village, Orchard, Russell and Solano, are located along the edges of campus.
