Housing for Visiting Scholars

Rental housing in Davis includes apartments, duplexes, townhomes, condominiums, rooms-for-rent and houses. The arrival of UC Davis students each September nearly doubles the city's population, and makes year-long leases the norm and short-term rentals hard to find.

You may need to arrange temporary housing for the first few days of your stay in Davis. Please see information about the Hyatt Place located on campus, and other hotels or bed-and-breakfast establishments in the area.

UC Davis is a research university in the central valley of California.  We have over 30,000 students.  Finding housing for short term visits, a month to less than a year, is a challenge.  You will need to initiate your search well before your expected visit.  The information offered here will assist you in finding housing and outline the options and resources available to you both on and off campus.
