I love walking or biking through campus. There are wide pathways connecting the buildings. Tall, leafy trees to block the sun on hot days and egg sculptures throughout. Make sure you wear a helmet if you're biking. Some of the students are not good bikers! (especially in the fall when the freshmen arrive).

A nice, big campus, very green, clean, modern and organized with a relaxed atmosphere and many bicycles parked everywhere. Parking it's not permitted in many areas of the campus so visitors are requested to drop the car at one of the parking garages. Be ready for a nice walk (comfortable shoes are reccomended) or get a bus in the campus.... More

Great for kids & adults alike. There is a living zoo with spiders & insect species you've never seen. Staff is delightful.

This is a big campus, maybe the biggest UC campus there is. There is hardly any parking on campus, so walking, bicycling or taking the bus are the usual forms of transportation. It is clean and well maintained. A dorm had a broken door lock and the maintenance department fixed it the same day.

The school makes up the Davis community, easy access from the main highway. Not sure what else to do around the immediate area other than visiting the Downtown area just a few short blocks away. Like knowing there's an easy commute to the school by plane, train or automobile. Also, easy access to travel to Sacramento or UC Berkley. The... More

I'm a bit prejudiced, since I got my PhD here and completed my professional career here, but I have seen a lot of other universities and colleges nationally and internationally, and know UCD for its quality, uniqueness and outstanding reputation for so many facets--agricultural, veterinary, medical, biotechnical, engineering, cultural and ambiance!

The campus is clean and green. Lots of trees and flowers, squirrels and birds are everywhere. They say, this is a city of bikes. This is true, they all, students and professors, youngsters and older people bike. There are many sports facilities there, and various games/competitions are almost every day. In addition, they have different cultural events there every day.

I love the UC Davis campus. While there be sure to talk a walk along the arboretum. There you will find a wide variety of plants and wild life. If you have time bring along a picnic lunch, it is very relaxing there. The thing that amazed me the most was the sea of bicycles everywhere. I live in a... More
