With three Tandem properties offering apartments on the UC Davis campus (The Atriums, Russell Park, and The Colleges at La Rue) we’re big fans of of the convenience and lifestyle an on-campus location can provide. After years of encouraging residents to select the best fitting community, we’ve also learned that life in Aggie central is a size that does not fit everyone. So, to help you with your housing search, here are four signs that life on campus might NOT be the best fit for you:
You had trouble sleeping in the dorms. On-campus properties tend to hum with activity. Populations are dense and active. If the distant drum of a subwoofer is more of an aggravation than inspiration, life a bit more removed from the campus scene might be your best fit.
You need parking to accommodate an overnight guest. On-campus parking is highly regulated by TAPS and overnight guest spots are usually few and far between. An off-campus property with a bit more parking to offer might be a better option for you.
Your budget is tight. If the starving part of the college student experience resonates with you as much as it did with us, remember that a good rule of thumb is that the closer you are to campus, the higher the rents are. Davis is small, Unitrans bus service is regular, and bike paths are excellent. Don’t be afraid to branch out and save some cash.
You didn’t get along well with your roommates. Sometimes roommate disagreements are about compatibility, but sometimes an introverted person can have trouble if they don’t have the space and quiet to rejuvenate. If your idea of a perfect evening includes a room for just you, you might want to opt for a property away from campus where your dollars can get you a bit more elbow room or even a private apartment.
If off-campus living sounds like it might be a better match for you, remember that with 14 properties to pick from both on and off campus, Tandem’s got you covered! Message us today and we’ll help you find your perfect fit!
It’s three days into winter quarter. You’re enjoying a latte and just getting back into your study groove when suddenly everyone starts to talk about housing for fall 2014. You’ve heard that popular housing choices can go quickly and there is pressure to jump on board and sign NOW with your friends before you miss out.
But wait just a minute! Your apartment and who you share it with will be one of the biggest influences on your life in 2014. While the Davis apartment market does prompt renters to shop early (mid January is a good start) don’t miss out on the chance to be true to YOU. Shop early, but don’t settle.
Tour at least three apartment complexes in Davis and ask yourself these hard questions before signing on the dotted line:
- Can I picture myself living here for a year?
- What is the management like? Can I talk to them when I have a problem?
- What is environment like? Is it too social or too quiet to meet my needs?
- Have I done the math and is this in my budget?
- Am I getting the things on my “needs” list?
- Are my potential roommates a good fit?
- Do I love it, or am I signing just to be done?
If your answers are YES, you’re good to go. But if not, remember that there’s nothing wrong with taking a quick breather until you’re certain. At the end of the day, signing where you’ll be unhappy isn’t good for anyone involved. Take a moment this January to be true to you. And, if you’re not sure, message a Tandem expert for help. With 14 properties to pick from and leasing agents that don’t work on commission, a good fit is our top priority.
We think it should be yours too.
For those of you looking for a procrastinator’s quick tip between study sessions–you’re just multitasking, we get it– here’s a guide to the lingo you need to know from our teams at Casitas and Chautauqua.
Casitas and Chautauqua are two side-by-side sister complexes in North Davis that share amenities and one office staff. Affectionately referred to as Tandem’s two-for-one special, these two properties pack in 14 different floor plans from space saving studios, to large duplexes with private backyards.
With so much variety, Casitas and Chautauqua are great places to start your apartment hunt and get to know your options. Use their helpful lingo guide as a start, and feel free to contact them at 1 (888) 204-9525 (or in their office located at Chautauqua) with any questions. Good luck with those tests this week. Go Ags!
Remember to add to Tandem’s fall 2014 contact list for information about wait lists, model tours, and more.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Break! Call us at 1-866-536-8896 with any questions. We look forward to helping you Shack with the Pack!

One of the first questions Mom and Dad will probably ask you about finding an apartment near UC Davis is, “How much will it cost?” Unlike the dorms, where your living costs are typically prepackaged, in your first apartment you’ll be expected to cover your own expenses — meals, utilities, parking etc.–in addition to your rent.
The good news is, in the long run, itemizing your own expenses typically saves you money. But, it’s also important to know how to estimate what you’ll be expected to pay so you don’t get in over your head.
With nine different floor plans ranging from cozy cottages to spacious town homes, and both newly updated and standard options available, Arlington Farm is uniquely set up to match any budget or lifestyle. Use their Budget and Finance Guide below to help outline your costs and prompt you to ask management about what is included in rent. If you have any questions about costs after completing your worksheets, call an expert at Arlington for great insights about matching your needs. They’re familiar with all 14 Tandem Properties and are happy to help!

There’s More to Roommates than BFFs.
Nothing can make or break your first apartment experience quite like the people you choose to share it with. Roommates are in your space 24/7 and taking steps to pick them carefully can save you tons of regret a few months down the road. With more than a decade of roommate-matching experience, and one of the top roommate matching programs in Davis, no one gets roommate compatibility down pat quite like our team at Adobe at Evergreen.
Here’s an infographic with their tips on determining roommate compatibility. Use this as your guide to help find your perfect fit for fall–BFFs proceed with caution–and when your household is strolling along while others fall apart next spring, you’ll be SO glad that you did.
