When to Start Looking
Begin your housing search as soon as possible. Come to Milwaukee and start getting familiar with the city. Ideally, try to visit the Milwaukee area no later than July so that you can sign a lease to begin August 1. August 1 leases will be on the market the first full week of June. You want to be settled in your apartment by the time Orientation starts. If you need a place to stay while you are conducting your housing search, please consult the Lodging and Housing Guide published by the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center. The following week-ends will be 'extra busy' in the Milwaukee area. You may need to adjust your schedule if hotels are full: June 26 to June 30 and July 2-7, Summerfest; August 1 - August 11, Wisconsin State Fair.
