Interest Form Open for 10-Bed, 4-Bath House

Tandem Properties and UC Davis Student Housing would like to solicit student organizations interested in living on campus in a Living Group house at La Rue Parkway. The lease for the available house will begin in September 2018. We will conduct a competitive selection process to fill this vacancy with interested registered student organizations as verified by the Center for Student Involvement.

The available house is 4,000 gross square feet approximately, and designed for 10-14 occupants in double-occupancy and single-occupancy rooms. It includes a kitchen, dining/living room, bathrooms for multi-person and private use, and a private patio. The 2017-2018 rental rate is approximately $6400 per month. Residents are responsible for the utilities and insurance.

Interested groups are invited to submit the La Rue Parkway Living Group Interest Form online by 4:59pm on October 27, 2017. The interest form asks questions about group size, alumni involvement, and reason for interest. A committee with representatives from Tandem Properties and the University will then review the information and select groups to participate the application and interview process. Selection will be based on information provided on the interest form, standing with the University, and membership sufficient to meet the financial obligations of leasing one of the available houses.

An info session about the solicitation process will be held on Thursday, October 5 from 12-1 at Regan Main. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Kayla Koenigshof.

If there are any questions about this process or the attached applications, feel free to contact Kayla Koenigshof at 530-752-0272 or koenigshof@ucdavis.edu.

Volunteer Opportunity – Global Engagement Mondays

If you are a life-long American resident, and if you enjoy meeting new people from other cultures and learning about different perspectives, apply to be a GEM facilitator! It’s a great way to get to know members of the UC Davis international community and develop new skills in intercultural communication and group facilitation at the same time!

GEM provides an opportunity for both domestic and international students, scholars, and spouses to discuss a variety of topics in a creative and safe environment. Topics during previous quarters varied from discussing experiences with cross-cultural greetings to discussing personality types and how they impact everyday life. You can read more about the program on the SISS website. Last spring, we averaged an attendance of 30-40 people each Monday!

When: GEM will occur every Monday night beginning October 23rd from 5:30-6:30pm

Interested in being a GEM Discussion Facilitator? Sign up here!
