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.


The Memorial Union is home to one of two flagpoles on campus. The United States of America Flag, the California State Flag, and the University of California Flag can be seen flying rain or shine. If you see the University flag at half-staff, an affiliate of the UC Davis Campus is being honored after passing away. If any staff is lowered to half-staff, there is an In Memoriam Card on the North side of the flagpole in remembrance of those who passed. Responsibility for raising and lowering the flags is shared between ROTC, NROTC, and the Information Desk.

Student Expression

UC Davis is home to many student activists. If you are looking for more information about how to go about expressing yourself, the University has provided students with resources on the Student Expressions Page. This page provides resources regarding rights, protests, and locations on campus that provide support to students. One of the key locations for student support is the Center for Student Involvement located on the fourth floor of the Memorial Union. They help groups operate successfully on campus and to support the educational experience which organizations provide for student members – as well as the entire campus community.
