By “sooner than you think,” we mean that you should already be searching for your next place right about now. You wouldn’t think it when you look at little ole Whitewater, but the off-campus housing search can get pretty competitive—like, more competitive than when Sports Team 1 and Sports Team 2 face-off in a game of sports.
Most students at Whitewater start searching for their next apartment or house a full year in advance. We did a bit of digging and found that there’s a huge surge in searches for Whitewater apartments and houses starting in September and continuing through October. So, if you’ve had your eye on a certain house on Tratt or downtown Whitewater apartment, do yourself a favor and call the landlord for a showing sooner rather than later. Chances are someone else has their eye on the sample place as you.
The kind of place you’re looking for will also play a role in how quickly you need to get your butt in gear on finding a place. If you’re looking for a UWW apartment, you can hold off starting your search until late September. But, if you’re looking for a house in Whitewater near campus, you should start searching as soon as possible.

Sure, there are a couple of pricey rentals on the market, but as long as do your due diligence in your search you’re going to be able to score an affordable rental. Keep in mind that there are a couple of ways to save yourself some cash.
The main way to save yourself money on rent every month is to team up with a couple of friends and rent a place together. Sure, sometimes your roommates will steal your leftover Rosa’s pizza, but by living with them you’ll be saving hundreds of dollars every semester on rent. Plus, the more people there are to split the cost of utilities and groceries, the cheaper it’ll be for you.
If you absolutely refuse to have a roommate or two, know that living on your own is the most expensive living option available by far. So, unless you’ve got an “in” with a landlord, you’re going to be paying a pretty penny for a studio or one-bedroom apartment in Whitewater.

We’re not saying that all Wisconsinites do during the cold winter months is eat and drink, but we’re not not saying that either. When you’re done with class and want to grab a bite with a few friends, there are a ton of different spots in Whitewater to choose from. The hard part about having so many options for places to eat is choosing where you want to go. If you need help deciding where to go, we picked out a couple of spots that you can grab some grub in Whitewater.
The Sweet Spot
Jessica’s Family Restaurant
The Black Sheep
Whitewater is a pretty small town, but that doesn't mean there's nothing to do when you're not in class! During the warmer months, you can go explore Starin Park or go for a hike on one of the trails near campus. If the outdoors aren't really you're thing, you can head to Downtown Whitewater to visit the local shops.
Pro Tip: Head to the Sweet Spot cafe for a morning breath bagel & coffee before you go wandering around town.
If you feel like you've spent enough time in town, make take the day to go somewhere new - Janesville is only about 30 minutes away and Madison is only about an hour (depending on how fast you're driving). If you have the whole day to do whatever, we suggest to heading to Madison since it's a bigger town and there's more to do.
