Real estate owned by The Regents of the University of California is held and managed either as "endowment" or "university-related" property. Endowment property is property received by the university through a donor's gift or bequest. It is held for income generation and/or future sale. Real Estate Services & Strategies (RESS) oversees management and sale of endowment property. (Each UC campus has a foundation which may hold property in its name and is responsible for management and sale of foundation-owned real estate.)

University-related properties are used for the university's programs in furtherance of the university's teaching, research and public service mission. University-related properties are managed by campus or other university units that use the property in their program. If a university-related property is determined to be surplus (i.e., there is no current or foreseeable university-related use), then RESS is responsible for its sale.

Properties available are listed on the pages linked below. With certain exceptions, university-related properties are subject to sale by sealed competitive bid and information on that process is also provided on the links below.
