Does the institution have incentives or programs to encourage employees to live close to campus?:

A brief description of the incentives or programs:

Aggie Village offers UC Davis faculty and staff the opportunity to purchase affordable, quality homes adjacent to campus and created specifically to suit the needs of the growing university community. Aggie Village's location integrates the campus with downtown Davis, and in part, functions as a gateway to the city and the UC campus. The five-block site includes retail, residential and university uses, and useable open spaces. Bicycle trails and pedestrian paths offer connections to destinations in Davis and the University. Aggie Village is bordered on the south by the UC Davis Arboretum, which has its own bicycle and pedestrian paths.

UC Davis West Village is a new campus neighborhood located on UC Davis land adjacent to the core campus in Davis, California. It is designed to enable faculty, staff and students to live near campus, take advantage of environmentally friendly transportation options, and participate fully in campus life. Located west of the core campus, UC Davis West Village allows ease of pedestrian, bicycle and transit access to the main campus and greater community. The community is served by Unitrans, the campus-city bus service, and as UC Davis West Village matures, residents may not purchase a parking permit on campus.
