Privately Owned Apartment Rentals

The UW-Madison Campus Area Housing page has a convenient search engine where you can search for off-campus rental housing (sublets). The website has online listings of privately owned apartments, houses and rooms for sub-lease, as well as consumer rental information. For further information, call UW-Madison Campus and Visitor Relations at (608) 263-2400. Please be aware that most off-campus students either walk, bike, or bus to campus.

Cooperative Housing

Madison has a vibrant co-op community. If you are interested in learning more about summer opportunities, you can find the most current information at UW’s Center for Cooperatives and at Madison Community Cooperative (You can check out their Instagram and the International Co-op House Facebook page too!).
