UW students have a complete range of options when it comes to on-campus living. When choosing a dorm, location sometimes becomes the largest factor. Students suggest that those looking to stay closer to academic buildings should try Chadbourne or Liz Waters. Both are right on campus and offer extraordinary academic support programs. If students are looking for a little more lax or social atmosphere, the Southeast dorms are the place to be. In terms of pure appearance, students can't go wrong with the Lakeshore dorms. These cottage-like buildings border Lake Mendota, offering a phenomenal view and country atmosphere.
UW is very accommodating in terms of student housing. There are thirteen public (University) dorms, and about five private dorms. The public dorms are primarily for freshmen and sophomores looking to meet people, and wanting to ease into college life. They all have computer labs, laundry facilities, study rooms, and entertainment lounges. Each also has something unique about it, either in terms of academics or campus involvement. Amenities and pricing do vary, so be sure to fully check out all options before finalizing any living situation. While some of your better days may not be spent in the dorms, the majority defend this housing option.
