Contact Information

For questions, data requests and changes to your recharge account (FAU), please email utilbill@ucdavis.edu.  

Utilities Billing

Utilities are provided and monitored for most of campus by the Utilities department. Buildings within the city and a few on the perimeter of campus are serviced by the City of Davis and/or PG&E, and those services are called Purchased Utilities.

FacilitiesLink is our official office of record regarding space allocation per building. Therefore, it is the department’s responsibility to ensure that FacilitiesLink is kept up to date. In addition, please be advised that we will not make billing adjustments beyond the current fiscal year. 

Special note on mixed use occupancy buildings: Some buildings on campus contain multiple departments. If a non-state supported department occupies space in a mixed-use building, we recharge utilities by multiplying their associated square foot percentage by the total building use per commodity.
