Upon receipt of an application, Student Housing places the applicant on a waiting list. When an apartment becomes available close to the applicant’s desired occupancy date, a lease offer is extended.
Current UC Davis students may apply for an apartment. Applicants who are not yet enrolled at UC Davis are encouraged to apply for housing before admission is confirmed; applications are not lease agreements and applicants are not required to accept a lease offer. However, applicants must be enrolled as full-time students (12 units or more) at the university in order to take possession of an apartment, and residents must maintain full-time status at the university to continue to reside at Orchard Park or Solano Park apartments.
Refer to the Cancellation Process for information about canceling an application or lease, including how to file an Appeal for Contract Release.
Refer to General Information About The Lease for a lease overview. However, be sure to read the entire lease before agreeing to it.
