ResLife @Madison

We don’t leave fun or academics to chance.

Our team includes live-in Resident Assistants and Resident Directors, most of whom are current UW-Madison students. These professionals participate in rigorous training that thoroughly prepares them to provide support and guidance in literally any situation — from an academic struggle to a personal crisis. Our training curriculum mirrors those found at our nation’s top universities.


At Dorm@Lucky we offer you classes to learn basic life skills. Take a look at some of the subjects we offer:

  • Personal finance/budgeting skills
  • Staying safe on campus
  • Eating healthy at college
  • How to manage a job and school
  • How to write a successful resume
  • Early steps for career planning

The RAs here let me live on my terms, but don’t let me fail. They give me space to figure out who I am.

—Erik F. from Maple Grove, MN, Dorm@Lucky Resident
