Student Housing and Dining Services knows that academics are a priority for students at UC Davis, which is why supporting academic success is a part of our mission. The New Student Academic Services team is dedicated to providing support, resources, and programming to help students succeed during their first year and beyond. In addition, Student Housing has a long-standing collaboration with the four colleges and Academic Assistance and Tutoring Centers, which provides convenient and accessible academic support services in the 3 Residential Academic Centers and living communities.

Each Student Housing and Dining Services resident is invited to receive personalized one-on-one academic mentorship by scheduling an appointment with an Academic Peer Mentor that will guide you through your first year. Academic Peer Mentors are trained to assist students in all four colleges and can help:

  • Prepare for academic advising appointments and pass times
  • Strategize for test taking and studying
  • Create solutions to your academic concerns
  • Explore and change majors
  • Utilize campus resources
  • Get engaged on campus with student organizations, research, internships, jobs
  • Find your community on campus
  • Use computer systems on campus: OASIS, MyDegree, Schedule Builder, Canvas
  • Learn from their experience
  • Remind you academics can be difficult at UC Davis and there are people here who want to support you!
  • And much more!

You can find your Peer Mentor here and there will be multiple opportunities to meet the Residential Academic staff in person during Moove-In or by stopping by any of the Residential Academic Centers during the year.

You can find additional information regarding the services Residential Academics provides at anytime at the Residential Academics webpage
