UC Davis has selected University Student Living of New Jersey to enter exclusive negotiations to develop two major housing projects on campus, at Orchard Park and at West Village. The selection follows a request for proposals issued in June.
As originally conceived, the proposed projects would provide more than 2,775 beds for graduate and transfer students, as well as those with families. With the developer selection completed, UC Davis and the developer will continue to evaluate affordability and density options to exceed the prior target of 2,775 beds.
“We are excited to see both of these projects move forward to provide more on-campus housing options for our student population,” said Emily Galindo, associate vice chancellor and executive director of Student Housing and Dining Services.
University Student Living was selected from among six developers previously vetted through the UC Student Housing Initiative.
