Davis, Calif. — The University of California, Davis has opened Tercero 4, an on-campus development consisting of three residence halls and a community building. 

The residence halls — Cottonwood Hall, Redwood Hall and Madrone Hall — will be home to about 200 students each and offer single-, double- and triple-occupancy rooms. Cottonwood Hall features a music room with sound attenuation and a piano for practicing music; a wellness and meditation room; and a large recreation room with a television, game tables and three video-gaming stations for use by all Tercero residents. Olive Hall, the new community building, includes a large main lounge with a community demonstration kitchen.

The $59.1 million development is part of a long-term development plan that aims to increase student beds on-campus from about 9,400 in 2015 to a total of 15,600. In the next two years, the university plans to open a new 500-seat dining hall and a 400-bed residence hall, replacing the existing Webster Hall.
