At Ryder on Olive, we want to help support their productivity by giving them access to multiple shared and private study lounges. We want to keep them healthy with an on-site state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga room. Ryder on Olive meets every need that your student will have while in college so they can achieve what they came here for in an enjoyable atmosphere.


For Students

Individual Leases

Individual leasing means peace of mind for you. Your financial responsibility is only for your student’s space unlike many apartments or rental houses where a joint lease is signed. If a roommate transfers to another school or moves out of Ryder on Olive for any reason, you do not have to worry about having to cover their portion of rent. This is just another reason why Ryder on Olive is your student’s best housing option!

On-site Professional Staff

Our maintenance staff will respond to your student’s maintenance issues quickly and professionally. Ryder on Olive offers 24-hour emergency maintenance as well so that your student’s comfort is not affected.

Affordable Floor Plans

Ryder on Olive has fifteen spacious floor plan options so they will easily be able to find one to suit their needs. We have 2 bedroom, 3 bedrooms, 4 bedrooms and 5 bedroom apartment homes. There is an option for a single room or a shared room in each floorplan, and each come with a TV in the living room!

Roommate Matching

If your student does not have a roommate in mind, we can find them one! Each roommate will fill out a Roommate Matching form so that we know what they are looking for in a roommate. During the summer, we spend weeks looking at these preferences and matching them up with the best person we can find!

Does Ryder on Olive offer some sort of Affordable Housing for Students?

Yes! Ryder on Olive offers a one-of-a-kind affordable leasing option in the 2x2 shared and 4x4 shared options. For more information, or to see if you qualify for the Lincoln Affordable Student Housing Program, please contact the office!

Resident Events to Keep Students Involved

While the main focus of your student’s college career will be about graduating and getting a fulfilling job, they also need to have fun along the way. At Ryder on Olive, your student will create life-long relationships and connections that will make them even more successful. Our great staff plans monthly resident events to get them involved. These events range from pizza parties to karaoke nights, from resume building classes to gaming tournaments. We will also keep our residents connected to events going on at UC Davis as well as events happening around town so they don’t miss anything! We want your student to succeed, and that’s why we thought of them while designing Ryder on Olive as a Living-Learning environment!

Are leases for families with children available?

Yes. The property’s policy is included here for family occupants with a child(ren) under the age of eighteen (18) who is domiciled with (i) at least one parent, legal guardian, or another person having legal custody of the child under the age of eighteen, or (ii) the designee of such parent or other person having such custody, with written permission of such parent or other person. For family households with children, all household members age eighteen (18) or older must: (A) complete an application, and (B) sign the lease as a Resident. For family households with children under the age of eighteen (18), at least two (2) people will be permitted to occupy a single bedroom. If a family household with children under the age of eighteen (18) requires additional occupancy per bedroom, additional occupants may be allowed on a case-by-case basis based on factors including, but not limited to, the size of the bedroom(s) and unit, age of the children, configuration of the unit, any physical limitations of the property, and local occupancy codes. If the child occupant reaches eighteen (18) years of age during the term of the lease, the lease will be allowed to complete its term, but renewal will only be offered in compliance with the occupancy policy as stated. Child occupants who are under twenty-four (24) months at the time the lease is signed will not be counted under the occupancy policy for purposes of maximum occupancy but will be counted for subsequent leases if they reach the age of twenty-four (24) months during the term of the lease. The Landlord has the right to lease any empty bedroom(s). Families should contact the office directly regarding the application for family households, as this process varies from individual leasing and the required forms are not all available electronically.
