Student Housing

All Lake Area Tech students live off-campus. We do not own or provide housing for students. However, student housing information provided by local landlords is posted on this website as a service to students. These listings have not been screened, visited, or approved in any way by Lake Area Technical College. It is the student’s responsibility to inspect the unit and talk to the landlord to make sure the conditions meet acceptable standards.

Student housing varies and includes apartments, mobile homes, houses, and sleeping rooms in private homes. It is recommended that students arrange appointments with landlords before coming to Watertown as many are difficult to contact during the day. Most landlords request a deposit to hold a rental.

Some Lake Area Tech programs require internships/fieldwork which may shorten a student’s stay on campus. Keep this in mind when signing a lease.

Roommate information is also available below (must log into MyPortal after clicking on the link). Students that need a roommate can check for other students in need of a roommate, or can complete the ‘Listing for Roommate Form’ to have their information available for others to review.

It is recommended that students who plan to begin in the fall semester should begin their housing search by May or June unless they are interested in low-income apartments. Those apartments can fill quickly so check into them earlier.
