Friendliest campus imaginable.

It is a beautiful campus in the most bicycle friendly city in America. People are cordial and friendly, with a great appreciation of the environment.

Great college town with a lot of nature. Kids loved chasing squirrels around. Be aware of the bike riders.

Largest by acreage---By far! Largest by number of undergraduate students---Yes. We passed UCLA a couple of years ago. The only Vet School in the system. LOTS of trees, grass, open space. Occasional sculpture. A new museum under construction. What's not to like? Parking costs $9. Everything else is free.

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.

Very impressive medical facility. Tour was informative and fun. The building architecture is modern and outside areas conducive to staying outside. Lots of trees and sitting area.

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!
