Summer Visitor Housing

Summer Program runs June 29 to September 7

Individuals, who are official adult guests of UC Davis who are either affiliated with the University of California or will be at campus on business, are invited to book nightly single accommodations in the UC Davis residence halls. Accommodations include three meals per day and lodging in non-smoking residence halls close to most university resources and facilities. Because space is limited, we encourage guests to reserve early.

They include 2 sheets, 2 towels, 1 washcloth, pillow, pillowcase, and blanket (no bedspread or comforter). Housekeeping for rooms is not available during your stay, but guests may exchange towels daily at the conference housing desk.

Custodial Services

The residence halls are serviced by custodial staff who work daily to keep community spaces, public bathrooms, hallways, and stairwells clean and looking nice. Excessive messes caused by community members will not be cleaned by custodial staff, and residents may incur additional charges for such infractions.

Residents are responsible for the upkeep of their rooms. To help keep individual rooms and the community clean, residents can check out cleaning equipment and supplies at area conference desks — this is shared equipment that should be returned after each use.

Maintenance and Repair

Repair and maintenance issues should be directed to the conference service desk or on-duty staff for urgent repairs when the desk is closed. Maintenance staff are available weekdays from 8am-3:30pm and can respond to most requests within two working days; emergency repairs will be handled the same day.

Fire Safety

The residence halls are equipped with excellent fire detection and alarm system. Tampering with any of this equipment including fire extinguishers, heat/smoke detectors, or alarm boxes is strictly prohibited. When warranted, violators will be prosecuted and fined. At the sound of a fire alarm, all guests are required to leave the residence hall immediately and remain outside until the University Fire Department allows re-entry. As a fire safety measure, electric cooking appliances and candles are not allowed in the residence halls.

Upon checking into your room, please familiarize yourself with available exits and placement of fire alarm pull boxes. If you discover a fire, pull the alarm, and immediately leave the building through the nearest exit; do not use elevators in the event of an emergency.

Guest Safety & Conduct

Guests staying in the halls are expected to abide by all University and Residence Hall Regulations. Refer to University and Residence Hall Regulations for more information.
