Leasing for 2024-25 Year 

When it comes to leasing, we approach things a little differently. In the past, we used to lease all our apartments in one go, and they were snapped up quickly! While we are grateful to be your top choice for housing, we realized that this timeline doesn’t work for everyone. That’s why, unlike other off-campus housing options, we have decided to offer several leasing periods.

Pres House Apartments is leasing in three phases. We believe that our staggered leasing schedule helps alleviate some of the leasing pressure. Housing should be about finding the perfect place that serves you.

Because demand has been outpacing our available units (60% of our residents have renewed for the past two years, leaving very few units to lease to new residents) the only remaining leases are for single rooms and shared rooms.

Let’s talk apartment details.

We offer 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5-bedroom apartments with over 15 unique floor plans. Rent an entire apartment as a group or rent a single room within one of our spacious 4-bedroom apartments. Apartments come fully furnished with utilities, internet, and cable included.

Your campus home.

Pres House Apartments are more than just a place to eat, sleep and study. Live here, and you’ll live at campus’ best location: a place which will become your home away from home. At Pres House Apartments, a strong sense of community underlies everything we do — from engagement opportunities to scholarship programs. Come find out for yourself!



We understand the cost of apartment living, which is why we offer rent scholarships for residents who participate in programs that embody our mission and values. Our scholarship programs are a win-win: they also give residents unparalleled ways to connect with peers and discover new, meaningful experiences.



We’re known for our incomparable East Campus Mall location, within a block of Library Mall, State Street, Bascom Hill and the Memorial Union. Fun fact: Humanities is less than 150 steps away! Our sought-after location makes it easy to get to class, catch up with friends, and take part in events across campus.

From monthly Community Dinners, weekly Afternoon Tea, and seasonal events, there’s something for everyone on the Pres House social calendar. In addition to new memories and fun connections, we offer an unparalleled focus on our residents’ well-being. Pres House is here for you.

Why do we do it?

Pres House is a non-profit organization whose mission is to serve the UW Madison community. We offer programs and scholarships that help reduce residents’ rent and enrich residents’ experience. We strive to create an environment that allows residents to reach their full potential.

We are a place where residents can embrace:

  • Academic Success
  • Community
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Wellness
