And important NEW information about PARKING:
Downtown Madison has a 2-hour street parking restriction. Most downtown residents can apply for a Residential Parking Permit from the City of Madison, but some apartment buildings are not eligible. As of 3/1/14, Madison landlords who rent those units are no longer required to tell you this when you sign your lease!
If you have a car you plan to park downtown, check out this list of ineligible addresses before you rent. If your apartment is on it, you will need to either rent a private parking spot or move your car at least every 48 hours in a nearby neighborhood without a 2-hour parking restriction. Additional requirements apply during snow emergencies, street sweeping, etc. For more information visit the City of Madison Parking Utility webpage.
The Tenant Resource Center has been part of the Madison student community for over 30 years! Please thank ASM for seeing our consistent commitment to supporting students.
