Welcome to the Memorial Union

The Information Desk is located on the first floor of the Memorial Union.  Look for the bright white counter near the main lounge. The friendly staff can provide information about programs, facilities, and services available on campus, as well as directions on campus and transportation resources, and they are knowledgeable about all things UC Davis.

Lost and Found

The Information Desk desk takes in lost and found as a courtesy to our guests. We are not responsible for loss, damage to or recovery of property. Valuables are turned over to the UC Davis Police Department on a weekly basis. All other items are kept at the Information Desk for four weeks then donated. Staff are available to assist guests with lost and found during Memorial Union open hours.

Tabling at the Memorial Union 

The Information Desk coordinates table reservations for the Memorial Union and Silo. Reservations are available for registered student organizations up to four weeks in advance and for nonprofit groups up to two weeks in advance.  Online table reservations are only done for the first 3 weeks of Fall Quarter (see info below). Other than those 3 weeks, all table reservations must be made in person (unfortunately not over the phone or via email) at the Information Desk.

For a map of the table locations scroll to the bottom of this page.
