Student life

Are you ready to study hard and have fun? UC Davis is a world-class university with a relaxed atmosphere. There are plenty of opportunities to connect to clubs and organizations where you can make friends and make a difference.


Athletics are an exciting part of campus life where an estimated 614 student-athletes compete in 23 NCAA Division I varsity sports. Our famed home-game advantage is provided by Aggie Pack, the nation's largest student spirit organization.


Whether it is rock climbing, playing in the school band, choosing from 80 different craft activitities or playing on a sport club team, UC Davis keeps you engaged.

Arts and culture

UC Davis is known for transforming the national art scene, and with the addition of the Mondavi Center, performances of all types have flourished. From our student productions to plentiful art exhibitions to international dance troupes, UC Davis is awash in color, sound and motion.


The City of Davis is a friendly college town that cares about sustainability and welcoming newcomers. Ranked as one of the best towns to live in in the nation, Davis is also considered the most bike-friendly city in the nation.
