Sabbatical Housing

Since 1976, our sabbatical house listing service has posted furnished houses for rent. Our site lists both HOUSES FOR RENT and HOUSE SEARCHES, with the houses for rent listed at the top. You do not have to be a member of UFC to list a house. We require a donation of $60.00 per listing, which supports our scholarship endowment. The ads on our website are updated throughout the month, with the most recent addition listed first.

To have your house posted or to get in touch with us, please contact:

Diane Steele, info@ufcdavis.org

The information for the houses is provided by the homeowners. If you are interested in renting one of the homes listed, please contact the owner directly. All negotiations are between homeowner and renter.

Your  Listing Supports the UFC Scholarship Endowment

Each year, UFC awards up to eight scholarships to outstanding undergraduates. Your $60 listing supports our scholarship endowment.
