I like that I get a dorm community, but with better living conditions.

—Scott P. from Green Bay, WI, Dorm@Lucky Resident


You don’t have to live in a typical dorm — you have a choice. You think differently than your peers. You want more from your college experience than most people. You’d like to dorm differently too, in a positive environment that offers the space to be you. Welcome to Dorm@Lucky in Madison WI — the smart choice for college freshmen (and parents) because we give you the most out of your college buck.

If you’re serious about succeeding at school and life (while having fun along the way), then shop, compare and be smart. Typical dorms are old dorms – check out the new choice.

A Whole New Way 2Dorm

You’ll have a kitchen, bathroom and living room in your suite — plus groceries, coffee shops and fitness centers are right in your building. The average university dorm pales in comparison.

Shared bedrooms are easily large enough for two and a private bedroom is almost always a guaranteed option. If you don’t want to share a room you don’t have to. Plus, Dorm@Lucky has a variety of floor plans — you won’t find the boring cell-style dorm room here. Enjoy this new way to dorm for about the same price as more traditional options.

It was actually my dad’s idea to have us come check out Lucky! We were all very impressed on our tour of the building: everyone was so professional and friendly, and the rooms were amazing. I love the location, the academic support and the encouraging atmosphere. We definitely made the right choice for our family!”
