Student Housing operates two campus apartment complexes, Orchard Park and Solano Park, and partners with four privately-managed apartment complexes, West Village Apartments, The Colleges at La Rue, The Atriums at La Rue Park, and Russell Park, to provide exceptional, yet competitively-priced campus housing options for students who do not wish, or are not eligible to live in the residence halls. Student Housing also partners with several private apartment complexes to offer a transfer student-specific apartment living program called Student Housing Apartments (SHA).
Students with children should consider apartments that are intended for families - in particular, Orchard and Solano Park and Russell Park - and that are close to subsidized campus day care facilities.
Orchard Park and Solano Park Apartments - "The Parks"
Student Housing operates two campus apartment complexes, Orchard Park and Solano Park Apartments, collectively referred to as “The Parks”. For more information about Orchard Park or Solano Park, refer to the following page:

Privatized Campus Apartments
In addition to Student Housing's Parks Apartments and SHA program, five privately-owned, privately-managed (non-UC Davis) apartment complexes are available on the UC Davis campus. Each complex operates in partnership with UC Davis, while maintaining their own staff, programs, and buildings.
Contact a community to learn more about what they have to offer: the types of rooms available, special programming, environment, and pricing, as well as learn how to apply for housing and to determine eligibility.
