General Information

Marquette University provides a comprehensive, searchable website to help you locate appropriate housing around the Marquette campus. This website is the primary resource students use to find housing in the near-Marquette neighborhood. We encourage you to note that properties viewed on the map within the blue dashed line fall within the Marquette University Police Department patrol area. The site not only lists a majority of the properties located in the immediate Marquette neighborhood, but it also offers useful information on safety, budgeting, and campus and community resources. You may access our website at http://www.marquette.edu/offcampus/. Follow this link to Rent College Pads for the property listings near our campus.

If you are interested in living in a University-owned apartment, please visit www.marquette.edu/apartments and complete an application via the web form.
