Set up for success
The James West creates an atmosphere perfect for a well-rounded college life—one with space for studying, socializing and staying healthy. We treat college students like the young adults they are, so when they graduate and head into the real world, they realize they’ve already been living in it.
Giving You Peace of Mind
At The James West our first priority is to provide students with a good home. The building is accessed via secure electronic key access on amenity front doors and at the front door of each unit. We also have on-site courtesy officers and the building is equipped with an array of high resolution security cameras. Additionally, we offer controlled access parking and storage for students’ bikes and scooters.
We understand that student life is more than just studying. That’s why The James West is built around creating a well-rounded space catering to both academic and social needs. We have a range of amenities that encourage students to study to the best of their capabilities. This includes solid bedroom doors to minimize noise, dedicated study rooms and a business area. There are also outdoor study areas with Wi-Fi access so students can take a break from being indoors and study in the fresh air. To aid a well-balanced lifestyle we offer a cutting edge fitness center with a yoga room, steam room, and outdoor swimming pool. These amenities are designed with the intention of encouraging students to both socialize and remain physically active during their college years.
Professional Management and Maintenance
We are always here, providing on-site management and maintenance. The James West is professionally managed and maintained around the clock. We know how frustrating it can be chasing an absentee landlord, so we make sure our residents don’t need to. Our professional management and maintenance team is located right on site so students can pop in with questions or concerns during regular business hours. We have on-site Community Assistants available 24-hours a day and our management and maintenance team are always on call in case of an emergency.
Individual Lease Liability
One of the biggest concerns for residents of shared accommodations is being liable for the leases of other residents in the case something goes wrong. Fortunately, at The James West you needn’t be concerned. We contract individual leases per student, not per unit. This means students are responsible only for their own rent and are not liable for the rent of their roommates.
To make things even easier, we offer a personalized roommate matching service for students that want to be placed with a roommate. Students fill in a personal profile survey which assists us to match them with someone compatible with their academic studies, interests and hobbies.
Accommodations at The James West come fully furnished. This means that students don’t need to worry about purchasing and transporting furniture to and from college. Our apartments have everything your student needs – a kitchen complete with stainless steel appliances and plenty of cabinet space, a bed with storage, mattress, desk, chair, sectional or loveseat, coffee table and bar stools. The only thing left to bring is personal items and anything that students want to personalize and decorate their rooms.
The James West is positioned in an exceptionally superior and convenient location next to the University of Wisconsin campus, making it the ideal location for students. Your student doesn’t need a vehicle to enjoy living here. It’s only a short walk or bike ride to campus, restaurants, shops, university stadiums and nightlife in Madison. There’s no better place for students to reside during their college years.
