Campus Housing Capacity
The proposed LRDP housing capacity significantly exceeds potential enrollment growth associated with the LRDP. The Plan provides capacity for an additional 8,500 students in campus housing; about 1,000 students in residence halls and about 7,500 students in apartments. In 2016-17 about than 9,800 students lived on campus; about 5,500 traditional first-year students (freshmen) lived in residence halls and another 4,300 upper-division undergraduate and graduate students lived in apartments. The Plan provides capacity to nearly double the overall housing population on campus and almost triple the number of non-freshmen living on campus in apartments; this is the most ambitious student housing plan in the history of UC Davis.
