Living in Madison

Madison is consistently ranked one of the best places to live in the U.S., on measures ranging from fitness to food to family life. Located on an isthmus between the two largest of five sparkling lakes, the city boasts beautiful scenery and plentiful outdoor activities year round at its 260 parks and beaches. As the home of our state government and the flagship University of Wisconsin campus, it’s also a hub of education and the arts.

UW–Madison and the city of Madison blend seamlessly together, creating an atmosphere and opportunities that are truly unique. Founded on the Wisconsin Idea and the principle that the university “should ever encourage that continual and fearless sifting and winnowing by which alone the truth can be found,” UW-Madison has ranked in the top 10 in national research funding every year since 1972.
