Facility Rental Information

Looking for a beautiful event venue or a comfortable meeting space? International House Davis hosts numerous international and local events and activities.

It is first and foremost a place of hospitality for international visitors but many local events including panels on foreign affairs and current events are held there.

The community is invited to reserve the facility. Please see our facility rates and fees below or take a photo tour.  It is not required to be a member of I-House; however, I-House members recieve a discounted rate and businesses and organizations paying $100 for business memberships may credit that amount annually towards the use of the facilities.

Rent I-House for your event

I-House is ideally located in a historic Davis home, on a main boulevard across from University of California, Davis, and within walking distance to downtown Davis. It is situated on the I-80 corridor about 70 miles northeast of San Francisco and 15 miles west of Sacramento. Amtrak trains from both cities stop in Davis, and the Sacramento International Airport is only 20 miles away. Transportation from the airport is available by bus, shuttle, or taxi. See map.

The helpful I-House staff can assist in meeting the rental needs of many groups for a variety of events.  A variety of items and equipment are available for rent and I-House will attempt to accommodate any special equipment or furniture needs.

International House Davis is wheelchair-accessible and parking is available in the I-House parking lot. Additional parking is available for a small fee on the UCD campus (the nearest parking structure is a few minutes on foot on Howard Way which is across Russell Boulevard from I-House), and on College Park after 5 p.m. on weekdays and all day Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Temporary street permits are also available in the office.
