• How can my department lease space off-campus?
  • How can my department lease space off campus? The first step is to get budget approval from your Dean's Office.  Then, complete a Space Request Form, which can be found here.  Real Estate Services (RES) and Capital Space Planning will then help locate a space that is programmatically acceptable for your department.
  • If I am in off-campus leased space, who do I contact for repairs or maintenance in my office?
  • Check with Real Estate Services first to review your lease and determine the responsibility (either with the Landlord or Tenant).  If the Landlord is responsible for maintenance or repair, Real Estate Services will contact the Landlord.  If the Tenant is responsible, then Real Estate Services will contact the Landlord and ask if they can hold the vendor's contract for the maintenance/repair and the department will reimburse the Landlord for the cost.
  • How do I submit a new request to lease space?
  • See question 1 above.
  • What is the process for renewing existing leased space?
  • The first step is to get budget approval from your Dean's Office to extend the lease, or to arrange any needed renovations to the space.  Once that is determined, Real Estate Services will work with the Landlord to negotiate an extension and/or renovations to the space.
  • Can you lease off campus space to conduct research?
  • Yes, once you have budget approval from your Dean's Office and a complete Space Request Form found here, Real Estate Services will attempt to find the best available space to fit the programmatic purpose of your department.
  • What do I do for research permit/use for land and building related issues?
  • Once you have budget approval from your Dean's Office and complete a Space Request form found here, Real Estate Services will process either a License, Research Use Agreement, or Lease and ensure that it complies with University guidelines and best practices.
  • When I need temporary classroom or other space, what do I do?
  • Once you have budget approval from you Dean's Office and have completed a Space Request Form here, Real Estate services will execute either a License or Lease and ensure that it complies with University guidelines and best practices.
  • When do I need a License instead of a Lease?
  • When occupying a space intermittently, (i.e., 2 days per week for 3 months) a License is used.  When the use and occupancy is continuous for a set amount of time, a Lease is used.  Real Estate Services will help you determine the appropriate document.
  • What is a P3?
  • "P3" stands for "Public-Private Partnership".  For Real Estate Services, these partnerships are cooperative arrangements between the University and a private developer used to deliver real estate development projects such as student housing.
  • What P3 properties does Real Estate Services manage, and which ones do Student Housing and Dining Services manage?
  • Real Estate Services manages West Village, the Tri-Cooperatives and Baggins End (the Domes), while Student Housing and Dining Services manages 8th and Wake, The Colleges at La Rue, Primero Grove, Russel Park, The Atriums, and The Living Groups at La Rue Parkway.

  • Who is eligible to purchase a home at Aggie Village?
  • Full time UC Davis faculty and staff who have not owned a home within the Davis Joint Unified School District within the past 12 months are eligible to be added to the Aggie Village lottery list.  The campus determines who will be offered an opportunity to buy an Aggie Village home by holding a lottery whenever a home becomes available.  To be added to the Aggie Village lottery list contact Nina Mansfield at nmmansfield@ucdavis.edu.
