It's nearly impossible. I called about this last week and they already have hundreds of people on the waitlist and they turn over about 10 units a year. For Colleges at La Rue you had to have to apply by January. Actually, if you want a one-bedroom/studio of any sort off-campus now is the time to get on it. I was told by one property manager that they will all mostly be gone by the end of the month and this was confirmed by several past and present UCD students I know. It's a roug housing market in Davis, esp. for living alone. Larger apts and houses are easier to get.Originally posted by finnpipette
I'm gonna go with 4/1. That's when the committee should be meeting, so she won't have to worry about taking care of anything until the end of the day, leaving her to plan the event. quick question. Do any of you guys know how easy it is to land an on campus 1-bd apartment? those look pimp.
haha rock on.Originally posted by finnpipette
anyone wanna roomie? quiet, reasonably clean korean male, 23 yrs, entertains occasional weekend guests...can stand the stench of korean food, kimchi, bean curd?
In fact, some people live in Dixon because it's cheaper and only about 5 min away. Hope that helps some of you guys. [/B]
Yeah, the lack of new buildings did create a problem, esp. the last few years. Luckily, it is getting a little better because they did build a couple of new complexes this year. One property manager told me that this year has been less crazy because of the new complexes reducing demand a bit. And with the proposed cuts for UC there will be about 5000 less new students at UCD next year. So that will also help. But it is still pretty insane and totally overpriced.Originally posted by SharkFan3
For all you guys new to Davis I'll explain why housing is such a crazy mess in Davis. The city has stopped building new homes/apartments for the most part in hopes of preventing the school from taking so many students, but the school refuses to be bullied so they keep accepting more students figuring that the city council will have to give in and build more housing eventually. So...there is not enough housing and that of course makes it expensive. However, because the bus system is so good and parking isn't too outrageous (though a bit expensive) you don't have to live too close to campus. In fact, some people live in Dixon because it's cheaper and only about 5 min away. Hope that helps some of you guys.
Every school is good enough for me....Originally posted by Mr Reddly
Hey harps, didn't you get accepted to UCI? I know you withdrew, but doesn't that belong in your sig of (cali) interviews/accepts? or is it just not good enough?
haha same here. im thinking about davis housing at the same time seeing what happens with ucla...Originally posted by finnpipette
maybe we can get 3 or 4 people together and rent a house. i'm starting to get nervous...when's the latest that you can reasonably expect to find housing near campus?...kind of waiting on ucsd. not sure i'd go even if i got in, but my parents are giving me heat about rankings. bleh. whatever.
From what I understand there are a number of students who are married/engaged/committed and end up buying a house. Real estate in Davis is hella expensive... like nearly $300,000 for a decent 2/2 condo. So I think a lot of people try to buy in Sac or West Sac cuz it is cheaper and you get more for your money.Originally posted by Mr Reddly
In the Davis overnight housing list, I noticed that it seemed like a large number of students did not live in Davis. Anyone know why?
Also Harps, how about putting this in your sig:
or if you want to tell it how it is,
USC,UC(every single F-ing one of them ),Stanford
Kudos to you BTW!
no way in hell i can afford a hotel room. i rather go to a friends place an hour or two away and commute.Originally posted by hapkidochic
i emailed terri to ask her about whether or not we need to arrange/pay for our own hotel room. I'll let you know when she writes me back.
haha it would have been nice if ANYONE from davis right now could tell us something about this haha.Originally posted by finnpipette
If we're having breakfast at the marriot, i'm assuming that they're putting us up there for the night...maybe there's a motel 6 across the street . so sweet...
but then thats grad school. they do everything for grad students haha. we dont get that kind of cool treatment. but if they did, i would have to say that davis has the coolest 2nd look out of any school out there. since most of the other places they prolly set you up with students.Originally posted by Mr Reddly
I think its safe to say they will take care of it. When I interviewed for Grad school (basically a second look weekend), they all paid for an overnight hotel... Even Davis.
Don't worry. You'll have fun I'm sure.
Besides, they aren't going to risk you feeling bad and turning them down over a $50-100 hotel bill.
