Carefree Apartment Living

When Experience Matters, Live Lucky

Lucky sets the standard for hassle-free campus living. As Madison’s skyline fills in, we’re still the only owner who understands that the luxury high-rise lifestyle isn’t just about amenities and looks; it’s also about the way the residents and the building are treated – with respect, dignity, and care.

Because Size Matters

Every Bedroom is Big Enough to Share

Large Bedrooms at Lucky

The average bedroom at Lucky measures 145 sq. ft., shown here.

Lucky doesn’t skimp when it comes to your personal space: 90% of our bedrooms are 120 sq. ft. or larger and our average bedroom size is 12′ x 12′. We think you deserve more dignity than a 9′ x 9′ cell (especially a cell without windows).

Be wary of those who claim they can offer more for less. Less rent often simply means you’re getting less square footage, and smaller = cheaper. Ask to see room dimensions – ours are listed on every floorplan because we have nothing to hide.

Live The Dorm Life

A First Year Student Living/Learning Program

Dorm at LuckyUW Freshmen and Transfers are not required to live in UW dorms. (Translation: You don’t have to stuff your life’s belongings into a tiny room during your first year of college.) Choose to be in charge of your first year—choose to Dorm@Lucky.

Our Dorm@Lucky program is a separate floor at Lucky: you’ll be living with like minded individuals who are also new to campus. The program includes a full live-in Res Life Program that includes an RD, and RA’s to provide support, and tons of free events. Plus, you’ll pay LESS while getting up to 5x more space than the average dorm room and private dorm rooms are guaranteed!

This is the new way to dorm: with a kitchen, bathroom and living room right in your suite, with all of the extras and friendly people.


"I love the comfort and security that comes with living at Lucky. I can use it as an escape from the world if I am feeling stressed. In addition, it is right in the middle of everything, and I am within walking distance of all of my classes and other key places of interest.
