Having a roommate makes housing so much more affordable — and it means you’ll always have someone to hang out with, for better or for worse. As students at UW-Milwaukee, you and your roommate will probably want to live near the school, an easy walk or bike ride away, to make sure you’re never late for that 9 am class. Here are just a few of the 2 bedroom apartments for rent in Milwaukee, right near the UWM campus, perfect for you and your roomie.
These ivy-blanketed two-bedrooms are on Oakland Avenue, just two blocks from campus and a few more from Hubbard Park along the Milwaukee River. Being on Oakland has its advantages: You’re already on one of the most popular streets for college students, as it’s lined with quick, cheap food options like Sal’s Pizza, George Webb, Oakland Gyros, and Shawarma House. (Plus, it’s just extra-perfect for anyone named Ben.)
Just far enough from campus to keep it out of sight, the Park at 1824 is a great student community that lets you rent by the bed. Plenty of communal space — like a fitness center, rec room (with pool and ping-pong tables), courtyard (with grill), and study areas — means you’ll have more room to roam than you would in a typical rental unit, and the individual leases mean you and your roommate don’t have to worry each other with the paperwork. And they’re furnished, so you don’t have to drag your childhood furnishings with you to college.
Charming and unique, these apartments on Belleview have plenty of bike parking, which is the perfect way to cruise the four blocks to campus, or just a bit farther to Bradford Beach. The vintage building has built-in china cabinets and bar, but every unit will be a little different.
These spacious apartments have plenty of parking, but they’re also within easy walking distance of the campus. Oakland-facing apartments have big bay windows overlooking the activity on the street, while the rear apartments have a quieter view.
If these apartments aren’t striking your fancy, there are plenty more 2 bedroom apartments in Milwaukee. And we’ll give you a pro-tip: The ABODO app’s easy sharing feature can save you tons of time in getting approval from your future roommates — and if you need to go back to the drawing board, it has plenty of filters to ensure you aren’t starting from scratch.
