Carefree UW Apartment Living

When Experience Matters, Live Lucky

Lucky sets the standard for hassle-free UW Apartments. 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 UW Apartment: 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.

A Student Choice Apartment Community

The Best Option for UW Apartment Living

Choose Student Choice by Steve Brown Apartments and get the convenience of living minutes from your classes and all-inclusive (and exclusive) living.

By-The-Bed Pricing

Choose to live in a Single (private bedroom to yourself) or Double (share your bedroom with one other person) and pay the installment price shown.

Individual Leasing Options

Individual leasing allows you and your roommates to pay rent separately, so you don’t have to worry about roommates not paying their share.


Heat, furniture, Internet with speeds up to 1 Gig, laundry, and all of the amenities Lucky has to offer are included in a simple, low monthly Facilities Fee.

24/7 Everything

Imagine the convenience of having everything on-site

  • Attached businesses so you can eat, shop, and workout without leaving the building
  • Responsive on-site management, leasing, concierge and 24/7 emergency maintenance staff right downstairs
  • The convenience of having UW Admissions and Bursars offices and the Student Activity Center just around the corner

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.
