 General Leasing Information

Sycamore Lane Apartments is located across the street from UC Davis and was completely renovated in 2005. Our residents think that our increased energy efficiency and sound proofing are a great result of the recent renovations. Another common comment is that management is friendly and responsive and that maintenance is quick to fix problems reported by residents.

The Lease – Sycamore Lane Apartments uses a 31-page detailed lease that is both easy to read and quick to complete. We do not offer individual leases, often referred to as “by the bed”, all our leases are Joint and Several. Subleasing is allowed but should involve the office staff. The leases are 12-month leases with the vast majority beginning in September.

Wait list/lottery – At Sycamore Lane we use both a traditional wait list and a lottery system. The 1-bedroom apartments remain on a traditional first come first serve style wait list date and times will vary from year to year. The multi-bedroom units are determined via a lottery held in our office on time and date to be determined each year. The lottery and wait list generally begin the same day and they are held in our office.

Roommates – Sycamore Lane Apartments does allow doubling up at our facility in most apartments, the 5 bedroom is limited to 8 residents due to square footage constraints. All roommates are required to be on the lease.


Our energy efficient and conveniently located apartments and townhomes are exactly what you need to make the most of your time in Davis, California.
