Best dorms at UC Davis?
Bixby hall was old but the location was prime!
The newer the dorm usually the nicer they are. In Segundo, though not newer, the high-rises of Malcolm, Ryerson, Bixby, Gilmore are a bit outdated but still are nice. In Tercero, Scrub Oak, Redwood, and Cottonwood are all nicer and newer dorms. In Cuarto both Yosemite and Shasta are new (finished in 2021) and are well designed.
Newer dorm buildings are generally nicer - Cuarto has Shasta Hall, Yosemite Hall. Tercero has Cottonwood, Redwood, Madrone.
