YWCA Madison

Housing for Women

Intakes for single women's housing are currently open on a limited basis. Please call YWCA to schedule an appointment.


YWCA Madison’s downtown location features affordable apartments for low-income women, providing a safe and supportive permanent home in the heart of Madison. Apartments are available to women who make less than $32,600 per year. Rent ranges from $378 to $735 per month depending on the size of the room.

YWCA's building is conveniently located on the Capitol Square, with easy access to all city bus lines. Both the Badger and Greyhound bus depots are a short distance away, as is the University of Wisconsin and the downtown Madison College campus. Twenty-four hour staff and a night security guard ensure the safety of residents.

The apartments range in size from single-room occupancy (SRO) to one-bedroom units. Renters in SRO units share a bathroom, similar to the arrangement in a university dorm. Each floor also features a community kitchen and lounge. The YWCA Madison building has 68 SRO and 12 one-bedroom units, all of which are furnished.

A food and personal care pantry is available to residents.
