Housing Options in Madison
There are number of housing options available to SEASSI students, including
on-campus dormitory dorms, privately owned dormitory rooms and privately
owned apartment rentals. Each offers a different mix of convenience,
affordability, and flexibility. There are only a limited number of on-campus
dorm rooms, but there are usually plenty of off-campus apartment rooms

More information and an application form can be downloaded at the University Residence Hall website. Housing contracts are offered based on date of application. Dining Service is not privided as each hall is equipped with a shared kitchen facility which students are able to use. Residents must bring their own cooking utensils, dishes, and silverware.

Privately owned dormitory rooms
Private residence halls are residence hall (dormitory) living arrangements
that are owned and operated by the private sector. Application procedures
and lease agreements are solely the responsibility of the student renter,
not the University. Many include a meal plan. For information on Private
Residence Halls in Madison, write or call the halls directly. Applications
are not available through the mail from the SEASSI Office or the UW-Madison
