UC Davis operates an indoor sports center, the Activities and Recreation Center (ARC), Campus Recreation & Unions Leisure Pass Guidelines. The ARC features an indoor track, weight lifting and aerobic exercise equipment, basketball courts, an indoor soccer field, badminton courts, a climbing wall, gymnastics equipment, aerobic classes, and handball, squash, and racquetball courts. And our summer guests may be interested in the Rec Pool, which boasts the largest free-form swimming pool on the west coast, with lap lanes and a sun warming island. Facilities include a bathhouse with showers and toddler's splasher pool, all surrounded by a large shaded grassy area.

Some of these facilities require the purchase of a pass or some other form of payment. Included in most packages is the use of our recreational facilities. Guests using the ARC facilities will be issued an ID card on their first visit. Please allow additional time for this process.

Guest Safety & Conduct

Guests staying in the halls are expected to abide by all University and Residence Hall Regulations. Refer to the University and Residence Hall Regulations page for more information.

Fire Safety

Residence halls are protected by an excellent fire detection and response system. Each room is equipped with fire detection equipment which, when triggered, initiates full and immediate response from UC Davis Fire Department, which also supports a HazMat unit and EMS technicians. Because of the sensitivity of this equipment, electric cooking appliances are prohibited in all halls. Guests found to have tampered with fire safety equipment will be charged $300.

Upon checking into your room, please familiarize yourself with available exits and placement of fire alarm pull boxes. If you discover a fire, pull the alarm and immediately leave the building through the nearest exit; do not use elevators in the event of an emergency.
