2005-06-12 14:07:59   I've lived here for a year now and found the manager to be a very nice person. The main plusses are living alone and being right off campus. You really can't beat that combination in my book. —NiareeHopelian


2006-05-02 10:37:22   I also lived here a year without any problems. The location is the best (plus covered parking, not often offered in this area.) The manager lives on site, so is easy to get ahold of—very good at responding to notes. —EliSenior


2008-04-22 21:35:37   what is the current rent for the 08/09 year? —goosey


2008-05-03 20:49:55   I've lived her for almost two years, and I think it's a great place to live. Quiet, you don't have to worry about buying furniture except for maybe a desk and chair, parking, coin-op laundry, an apartment manager who actually enforces the rules and cares about making improvements to the complex - everything a studious student who likes her privacy wants. —Ruthann


2009-01-17 21:02:16   Whats the square footage and lighting situation? —alyssap


2009-04-08 02:48:02   what is the rent for current year 09/10? —ashna.singh


2009-04-14 21:30:28   Is this complex quiet? —nataliesadler


2009-04-26 15:22:45   Do the rooms have full kitchens? —BrianLi


2009-04-26 15:31:55   (By which I mean, a stove top and an an oven) —BrianLi


2009-05-13 14:42:55   To Allysap: It's 400 square feet (200 for bedroom/living room, 200 for bath & kitchen). The lighting is more than sufficient/ample.
To Ashna.Singh:
Rent for upcoming academic year (09/10): $815 for new tenants, with $800 deposit.
To Nataliesadler:
Yes, the apt complex is quiet. Everything that a good, studious undergrad/grad student could possibly want.
To BrianLi:
Yes, every apt comes with a fully equipped kitchen: stove top, oven, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, and kitchen sink.


2009-05-13 14:59:18   I've been living for two academic quarters in this apartment complex. It's been great so far. I can find no major cause for complaint. On the manager:
Quite possibly, the best apartment manager one can encounter in one's life. Very prompt at fixing things, very responsive to notes you leave on his mailbox; in general, he is a very friendly and informative person. —EddieH


2009-05-16 23:34:41   It sounds like a pretty sweet place — right next to campus and everything. does it get lonely at all? if so how do you cope? :P just wondering! —junniperlee


2009-05-30 21:05:22   Does anyone have any photographs of the inside of these apartments? —nataliesadler


2009-10-03 22:46:43   junniperlee: As a third year transfer moving into a studio, in a complex that already has a reputation for being quiet, I've definitely had some lonely moments. But I think it's worth it, considering how uncertain it can be when it comes to finding good roommates. The positives of living alone outweigh the negatives tenfold!

Also, if you're more of a board games and movie nights kind of person, as opposed to beer pong and crowds, Campus Manor is the perfect place for you :) —SJung


2009-10-28 18:25:12   I thought I'd put up a new comment. I moved in here in early August and I love it. It is nice and quiet. Only occasionally do I hear music or a television from a neighbor and that's easily drowned out with a fan. Another thing, too, the space is plentiful for one person! It's perfect. :-)

And, I love the curtains, SJung! I'm thinking of doing the same thing! —nataliesadler


2009-11-02 15:56:10   hey - so this might be a dumb question but...do you HAVE to get the apartment furnished? I've lived in greystone the last two years (this year will be the third) but now all my roomies are graduating and I'm staying a fifth year so I wanna find some place that's simple for one person and close to campus. this sounds great but I already have couches and a bed and tables and stuff so does anyone know if I can get an empty apartment???

also, I've been used to having my own washer and dryer in my apartment complex at greystone - how difficult, inconvenient, and/or expensive is it to do laundry there??? —brie311


2009-12-03 05:28:38   To brie311: Hi there! To answer your questions on doing laundry, I've been doing mine for a year now in the shared laundry room located on the ground floor. I have no major cause for complaint. The cost is $1 each time you operate the washer or dryer (must be paid in quarters since the machines use coin slots). The only drawback that I can think of is, you have to remove your laundry promptly once you're done. It is, after all, a shared facility and other tenants may be waiting to use the machines. It takes about an hour to do laundry for me: 15 minutes for washer and 45 minutes for dryer. Hope this information helps! —EddieH


2010-01-22 15:05:40   Can anyone post more pictures? I want to see the other part of the studio. It seems so nice at the entrance :D —iciel


2010-03-25 15:26:55   What is the average cost of utilities each month? I live in Florida, but will be moving to Davis for the Fall quarter and I am just trying to gain an understanding of how much it will cost to live there. Thanks. —bnolan1


2010-03-25 15:35:19   What is the average cost of utilities each month? I live in Florida, but will be moving to Davis for the Fall quarter and I am just trying to gain an understanding of how much it will cost to live there. Thanks. —bnolan1


2010-04-03 09:01:19   For me, it's about $30/month for gas and electricity charges. The manager takes care of the rest (water, hot water, garbage removal). —EddieH


2010-04-15 19:40:00   Can anyone tell me how long have you waited for before you get in? I filled out the form in March and haven't hear any thing back yet... —kay701112


2010-04-18 10:24:03   Thanks! I did ask the manager one week after I applied. He told me I have a room. but from then on, I have't hear anything from him... I'll ask again anyways. Thank you! —kay701112


2011-05-30 14:38:43   I have lived here for over a year and it has worked extremely well for me: it is SAFE, CLEAN, and across the street from school!!! The manager has always helped me with anything I needed - he shows up after one phone call or one note (that can be conveniently dropped into the mail slot on his door, here on site) and takes care of whatever needs to be done. In sum: EXCELLENT LOCATION and A GOOD MANAGER. —Adri


2011-06-06 16:52:06   Hello. Can anyone please tell me what the office hours are? I'm not in Davis and need to contact the manager but haven't been lucky. Is there any email adress for that purpose? Thanks —MagdalenaB


2011-07-14 06:41:58   Is there an email address of the manager for contact? —YanruLu


2011-09-28 15:59:47   @YanruLu: Tim the manager doesn't have a cell phone, doesn't use the Internet (so no email address), and is out of his apartment for much of the day. So the best way to contact him would be to leave him a voicemail through the 530-number. And because he's out a lot, there aren't any office hours—I'd recommend calling ahead and scheduling something with him.

@Kay70112: Like TomGarberson said, if you filled out a form you should definitely follow up with a phone call and voicemail.

**I honestly think it's the best apartment complex in Davis, so keep calling, leaving voicemails, and trying! Tim emphasizes that there be a studious atmosphere, he is quick to respond to requests, and is one of the best people I've met in Davis. If you're afraid of having to deal with shady apartment managers, leave that worry behind with Tim. I sound like a walking ad but I really enjoyed my time at Campus Manor. I just moved out after a two-year stay and I miss living there so much. It's right between campus and downtown, next door to at least six different food options, and a quiet place to have to yourself.i —SJung


2012-01-09 22:30:09   Can anyone tell me about their experience getting a deposit back? I don't want to get stuck with a manager that unfairly takes your deposit,or a huge chunk of it. Thanks. —maryh


2012-02-22 18:45:18   Hello! Are there any studios left to lease starting in Fall 2012? Also wondering if there are any left for the summer, and if so, if it's possible to begin renting in the summer and then stay in the same room for the Fall? I've tried both the numbers provided on this page, but am still awaiting a response. Are there any other ways to contact Tim the manager? Besides the faxing option, I guess continuing to call and leave messages is best. It doesn't sound like I'd be likely to find him if I tried to visit during the day. I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thanks! :) —LookingForAStudio


2012-02-24 17:25:45   @ LookingForAStudio: I'm a current resident here and I'm graduating/moving out after this quarter. I would love to find someone to take over starting Spring, but if you're interested in moving in during the summer that'd be great too! Shoot me an email at <aewu AT ucdavis DOT edu> and we can chat =) Btw, unless he's changed his policy, people who move in during summer get priority on rooms for fall. You may or may not end up in the same room. —AngieWu


2012-12-14 22:43:05   I'm moving out in the next few days and my apartment will be available to lease for the winter quarter. Not to sound like a broken record, but it really is a nice place to live. Quiet, extremely close to campus and downtown, and Tim (the landlord) is great. Contact me at camoen@ucdavis.edu if you're interested. —CMoen


2013-01-08 17:36:17   I'm looking to rent a studio here starting from September 2013 to June 2014, if that's possible. What is the availability on the studios here? —YaoSaephan


2013-06-04 16:36:17   I'm looking to sublease my unit for July and August, price is negotiable and it's possible to renew in September! just email me ahaberman@ucdavis.eduHaberman
