Travel & Accommodations
Davis, adjoining the UC campus, is a walkable city, and provides many opportunities for a relaxing evening after a full day of on-campus classes. For your convenience, we recommend hotels on the north side of Highway I-80. These are all about a 30-minute walk to the campus. More information about hotel bookings for this event will be available soon.
Motels on the south side of I-80 are generally not considered within walking distance of campus. If you are lodging in these motels, plan to use your car, bicycle or local bus transit.
For detailed information about accommodations and activities in the city, please visit the Yolo County Visitor's Bureau: Davis.
