Carved into an hourglass by Lake Mendota and Lake Monona—with Downtown running between them—the city’s East and West Sides are home to the majority of the student population and residential areas (not to mention significantly less traffic than Downtown).
East Side: Hip graduate students that migrate away from the University (particularly in Atwood/Willy) have made this area the hotspot for boutique shopping, co-ops, and an arty but easy-going bar scene.
Whitcomb Corner Apartments are ideally located and close to everything you could want on the west side of Madison.
These large, affordable apartments have tons of closet and storage space and open living spaces.
Lincoln Ridge Apartments are conveniently located near a major thruway with easy access to shopping, entertainment and dinning.
It’s the first—and only truly important—step to understanding and becoming a native of the hockey-happy college town that celebrates the best of living in the Midwest: beer, cheese, brats, lakes, homegrown activistism and apartment guides (okay, maybe apartment guides aren’t particularly Midwestern). Taking an approach that borders on being almost too nice, Madtown’s rental scene (stocked with an abundance of affordable houses, apartments and shared living spaces for the college set) is run by agents—not apartment brokers—that operate with a focus on quality service.
They make finding a sweet apartment so easy it makes Sunday mornings seem stressful.
Offering oversized floor plans and lots of relaxing amenities, this complex is within walking distance of the bus line and downtown Madison.
Units offer air conditioning, carpeting, ceiling fans, and new appliances.
Upscale one- and two-bedroom apartments have large windows, open floor plans, heated underground parking and washer/dryers in every building.
