The Milwaukee area is known widely as affordable for home/condo purchases as well as rentals. The commute around town is easy. The Medical College is located on the west side of Milwaukee County, close to parks, shopping malls, as well as freeways and public transportation.

The Milwaukee area rental market is varied, including apartment complexes, two-family homes, and rooms for rent near campus. I featured the following rooms for rent due to their proximity to the campus. Websites to visit during your search are Apartments for Rent and Start Renting.
