Arriving to Milwaukee before UWM housing is available? Airbnb can be a great resource for a short-term stay.

We recommend staying near the following neighborhoods: Shorewood, East Side, Lower East side, neighborhoods east of the Milwaukee River, as it is easier for you to get to the UWM campus.

Prices near UWM vary, but can be found for $35 a night plus fees (possibly including kitchen, wifi, laundry facilities, a glimpse into American lifestyles, and maybe you’ll make a new friend). Make sure you read reviews to find a safe, reliable and helpful host. If you have any doubts or questions, you can often message the owner for a swift reply. As with all new places, be aware of your surroundings.
