If students will be studying at UC Davis fewer than twelve months, then homestay is the most economical and convenient option. Many students are very happy with homestay and remain in placement a year or more. There are a few local homestay providers currently working with the majority of our students. Please review their websites for rates and packages. Some offer bicycle rental packages, cell phone packages, airport pick-up or drop-off services, and more. Please contact the homestay provider directly to make your arrangements. Based on student experience we highly recommend confirming homestay placement at least three months in advance of arrival.

- Renting a Room
Many Davis Families and student groups rent out rooms in their own homes for approximately $600 - $900 per month. Renting a room is an excellent opportunity to live with others who are not part of the International Programs. Students can make these arrangements on their own once they arrive in Davis. Many students will arrange homestay for arrival and search for an apartment or room for rent while in Davis. For a preview of what might be available, check the websites listed below.
