Housing

In Mexico City, you'll stay in a prearranged apartment and will be able to arrange your own accommodations in Sacramento. The program coordinator arranges your Mexico apartment based on a housing questionnaire you complete before departure. The UC Sacramento Center will provide resources for finding housing in the Sacramento or Davis areas.
