Students have a number of options when making living arrangements for their term in Sacramento. Below, we’ve listed several options and resources to help you with your search.

UCCS Housing
UCCS has a limited amount of spaces reserved at the Upper East Side Lofts in Sacramento, CA near Sacramento State University. UCCS students receive quarter- or semester-long leases, depending on their home UC campus.  The 2017-18 cost per quarter with utilities (gas, water, electric, etc.) internet and furniture included is $2,800. The cost per semester is $3,600. Due to limited space, students are unable to receive refunds after committing to housing at UEL. Public transportation to and from downtown is available, though you may choose to commute or carpool with other students. Students will stay in either two-bed furnished units with all beds in a large, loft-style room. Units also have a living room, a kitchen, one full bathroom, washer and dryer, and a patio.  Please note, items such as kitchenware, linens, toiletries are not included. Space is available on a first-come first-served basis, so apply early!

Commuting from Davis
Most students from UC Davis choose to remain living in the Davis area and commute by car, bus, or train to their internships and classes in Sacramento each day.  Students choosing this living option should remember to budget for commuting and parking costs since they are still required to attend all events in Sacramento.

Living with Family or Friends in the Greater Sacramento Area
Some students elect to live with relatives or friends already residing in the Sacramento area.  For commuting time considerations, we recommend that students consider this option only if the potential residence is within 20 miles of the UC Center Sacramento.  Scholar Interns choosing this living option should remember to budget for commuting and parking costs since they are still required to attend all events in Sacramento.


Finding Housing on your Own
Students may also choose to find and secure housing on their own. When researching other options, remember to factor in the cost of utilities, security deposit including first and last month’s rent, commuting, parking, and purchasing necessary furniture and other essentials. For students wishing to pursue this option, we have provided a few recommendations and resources below:
