Benches on campus

How to Dedicate a Bench

Arboretum Bench Dedications 

As of October 2022, the Arboretum bench dedication program is on hiatus as we reassess bench sourcing, identify suitable sites and adjust pricing for new benches within the Arboretum proper. Many campus benches located on other parts of campus, beyond the Arboretum, are available for dedication. See information on campus bench dedications below. 

Campus Bench Dedications 

A perfect tribute to any member of our UC Davis community, the Arboretum and Public Garden offers a variety of bench dedication location options across campus. Select from benches already positioned in a memorable location, or choose another meaningful site to place a new bench. (Please note that new bench locations will need approval from our campus Landscape Architect. A no-charge consultation is included with each bench dedication if necessary.)

Benches on our main campus are manufactured of durable, white or buff powder-coated metal.
