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 for sublease.
On campus housing
In summer 2023, Kronshage Hall, Humphrey Hall, and Jorns Hall will be completely reserved for students taking classes for academic credit. On-campus housing will be available to SEASSI participants for summer on a first come, first served basis through the University Residence Halls. The double room rate is $1485 for the 8-week session; most students will be assigned to double rooms as single rooms will be very limited for Summer 2023. More information and an application form can be downloaded at the University Residence Halls website. Housing contracts are offered based on date of application. Dining Service is not provided as each hall is equipped with a shared kitchen facility that students are able to use. Residents must bring their own cooking utensils, dishes, and silverware. Cash dining options are available at a variety of locations on campus when dining facilities are open.
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 Campus and Visitor Relations office. Below is a list of some of the most popular private dorms in Madison as well as a link to a map showing you their locations.

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.
Students who have been admitted to SEASSI will be provided information regarding a closed Facebook group created for their cohort, and may request to be added to the group. This group is intended to facilitate SEASSI community building, roommate and housing arrangements, and planning of social activities outside of class.
Please be aware that SEASSI cannot be held responsible for any sublet or rental agreements made through any aforementioned resource. However, we are happy to help when we can.
