The Housing Committee Chairperson investigates and recommends policies and programs concerning under-represented communities at UC Davis. The committee accomplishes this task by establishing liaison and achieving rapport with all on-campus and off-campus bodies affecting said communities and their quality of life at the University. Composed of nine members and up to four alternates, the committee welcomes visitors at its weekly meetings.

Our goal is to help create a better housing experience for the Davis community. We are here to propose legislation and support events that better educate the public on housing concerns. We voice issues that draw connections to inadequate housing to represent our communities, student body, and the University of California, Davis, more effectively.
