There was a time when the only housing option that you had when you went to college was living in a dorm if you weren’t able to live at home. Now, there are apartments and single-family homes available so that you’re comfortable while you’re in school. Here are a few reasons to consider this type of housing if you’re a student.

Sharing the Costs

Small University of Wisconsin Madison apartments might be easy to afford on your own, but if you don’t want to work full-time while in school or you don’t have a lot of wiggle room with your financial aid, then you might want to look for a roommate. There are usually matching services available through the school, and you can usually post on a community board about looking for a roommate.


Most University of Wisconsin Madison apartments allow pets for a small fee upfront or each month. You will likely need to abide by breed and weight restrictions, and you need to make sure your pet doesn’t cause a commotion if you have to leave it at home alone. However, this is a way for you to have a companion with you while you’re away from home, especially if you’ve had your pet for several years.


A benefit of living in an apartment is that you’re going to have more space to store toiletries and other items that you need, which means that you won’t have to spend money every few days getting one or two items. You’ll also have a kitchen so that you can cook, saving you money on eating out or getting meals that are prepared in the microwave that might be more expensive.
