Rated 4.4 / 5 stars by 7 UC Davis students
"The rooms are all doubles or singles, and feel shockingly more spacious than you would think. Location-wise you are right next to the market and other places like Trader Joe's and Rite-Aid. The noise is fine almost always except for on weekends when baseball games are played across the street and you can't really sleep in (if you sleep in until noon). The biggest problem is the bathrooms. Some of the stalls are uncomfortably cramped and if someone starts throwing their food out there ants will come. Fortunately it gets cleaned every day but it can get annoying."

"I thought it was pretty comfortable. it is really useful if you are premed in hope to go to med school or something related to health since your RA and the peer advisors that go help you a lot whether you should take certain classes or not."

"A very convenient location. It is located on the campus right next to Segundo dorms. It is quiet. Only thing is that the fan in the bathroom is so loud. It is not the most modern apartment but it gets the job done. I would say that this is the best transfer housing but people are not very social here. "

"Scrub Oak is a very desirable dorm in my opinion. It has one of the best location as you are essentially next to the DC as well as being really close to a lot of classes. It is also a pretty new building and offers everything a dorm should have."

"Current is convent since it is close to classes and Latitude for the weekdays and Terceo DC for the weekends, along with Tercero Market. It is one of the newer buildings with hall ways that are not too wide where you do not talk to anyone and also not too small so that it feels cramped. My room also had a nice view of the Latitude so and conveniently located near the stair way too. There are multiple stair ways and each one is on either side of the building and the center so it is convent."

"Loved living in Madrone. I was worried about having to live in a triple, but I found that I had more than enough space. The lounges are nice, especially the study room on the bottom floor, and I like the vending machine on the bottom floor (I get hungry at odd hours). The bathrooms were almost always clean, custodial did a great job, and I didn't often find myself having to wait to shower. Overall, the building is very well maintained."

"Loved living in Campbell, right across the street from the cows which I thought I was going to hate because of the smell but honestly miss being able to pet them when I'm stressed out. Does not have a kitchen and some rooms have thermostats to control AC but most don't, the others that don't have central heating/cooling so you won't be burning in Davis heat or freezing during the rainy season. New building so the lounge area is really nice and lots of natural light"

"One of the relatively newer dorm buildings on campus with a game room on the first floor. Cottonwood is right next to the Tercero market and dining hall. Close walk to classes and ~10 minute walk to the gym. The triple rooms here are very spacious compared to some other buildings in the area. Overall, pretty good experience except for the occasional cockroach in the bathrooms, which are generally very clean. "

"The elevator does break down sometimes but it’s very close to DC and science lecture halls."

"Was a triple when I moved in but one of my roomies dropped Davis so we became a double and it was great! Fourth floor lounge is the best and our custodians are so nice and hard working!!! Anybody I would take into Redwood wished they lived there because it’s the newer building and doesn’t smell funny. Right by the parking lot so any food you order or uber is right there which came in handy. You get to control the AC and heat which is more than most other buildings. Met my best friends in Redwood and I’m so sad I only got to live there 2 quarters because honestly loved it!!!!"
