4 UC Davis is currently replacing affordable housing complexes (Solano and Orchard Parks) Proposed rents are significantly different from what students can afford or currently pay Proposed project will not meet low-income needs Does the proposed project fit into UC Davis Vision 2020 for graduate student education? Excerpt from HUD (Department of Housing and Urban Development) Families who pay more than 30 percent of their income for housing are considered cost burdened and may have difficulty affording necessities such as food, clothing, transportation and medical care.

5 Surveyed Davis apartment housing (61 complexes surveyed, did not include exclusive housing such as university housing or low-income housing) Provided statistical analysis regarding pricing per square foot and amenities Rent proposals are inclusive of utilities Unit typePrice ($)footage Studio (single couples)$1, One bedroom (single/couples)$1, Two bedroom (single/couples)$1, Two bedroom family$1,400~930 Three bedroom family$1,

24 Need for temporary housing for international and domestic non-residents There needs to be some temporary housing for non residents and international students. Coming from a different country and making housing arrangements from a different country is challenging. Yes. For international students, UC Davis should provide temporary housing, since we do not have a credit card or a checking account to pay the deposit in advance or reserve a place. Unaffordable housing I have no money left to save. The savings I had are being spent on living while in grad school. Rent is ridiculous and will be moving out of Davis within a year. I am sick of the University outsourcing its neglect of student families onto the City of Davis. For me to live in an affordable housing unit, I am effectively denying a non-UC-affiliated family the opportunity to live affordably in the City of Davis. This is wrong.

25 Unaffordable Housing Cost of housing in Davis is expensive, but moving to Woodland or Sacramento would require additional spending on transportation (especially if I need to leave the lab at odd hours when public transportation is not running and if I need to be on time for a meeting). I was disappointed to find such ramshackle "affordable" living in Davis ($600 a month) and had to hire a lawyer in order to get out of my lease with the slumlord Unhealthy living conditions I may one day die of toxic exposure from this apartment, but at least I will be successful enough to find a secure job that has decent health insurance to prolong my life!

26 The majority of graduate students exist on an income below $30,000 dollars They pay approximately $620 per month between housing and utilities Graduate students report unstable income situations with little ability to save (GSR and TA positions)

29 New housing should reflect the needs of graduate students and post-docs in terms of affordability, availability, and amenities Target single room rent rates not exceeding 30% of a 9-month TAship (~530$) [HUD recommended] Complexes currently occupied by graduate students be considered when establishing projected rents, square footage, and choosing amenities The new housing development should take into consideration current and future projected needs for affordable housing (UC Davis 2020 initiative) Needs for temporary housing and flexible lease lengths to assist students and postdocs during times of transition should be considered

38 CGPSA will: Push for transparency in establishing rents and monitoring the process Continue to advocate strongly for the reality of graduate student living Highlight issues with administration of the university Recommend re-evaluating the current Orchard Park housing plan Advocate for recommended HUD rental rates that are 35% of a 9 month 50% TAship ~ (620$/month) Consider reaching out to the City of Davis
