    Hey guys,

    I'm going to be moving to UW-Madison this fall for college and I want to know if anyone knows of any apartments that are cool and without much hassle.

    I basically need to find a place for the school year, beginning this fall.

    Any info is appreciated, thanks.

    Just moved from Madison, WI--it's a lot of fun!

    I wasn't going to school there, so I avoided that specific area to live in, but some apartments that come to mind are the Lucky building, which is located in a great spot and very close to state street. It's a large building, but probably tough to get an apartment at this point in time, but who knows, it's worth a shot. Otherwise there are some great apartments on Broom or Bassett Street. If you do like State Street, there are also a couple there too. I found my apartment on Craigslist and lived there for 3 years, but was on the other side of the capital, where more of the graduate students lived.

    Good luck!

    These are some of the biggest rental companies in the city, they have a wide variety of apts to rent: some good, some not so good. I lived with JSM for four years and had very little to complain about. The other guy mentioned Lucky, which is very nice, but VERY expensive. Another just like Lucky is Grand Central. Really good locations, but very very expensive. Otherwise just do a quick search on google about madison renting. There are tons and tons of places to find. It's a college town, you shouldn't have any problem finding a place.

    I lived just to the north of the capitol and loved it, the neighborhood is a mix of working professionals and students. The near west side (near Camp Randall) is quite a bit tamer than the downtown or isthmus areas (minus saturday mornings of course), so if you're looking for a quieter area that's probably where you'll want to look. Its truly a great city and you're going to love it. Everyone does! Make sure you go to the terrace at the union as much as possible!

    Good luck!
