You have many options if you’re trying to find a short-term lease in Madison, WI. From renting short-term from Steve Brown Apartments to subletting from our residents, Steve Brown Apartments can help you find an apartment that fits your needs.
Why should I consider a renting short term over finding a sublet?
When you’re renting directly from Steve Brown Apartments, you are dealing directly with a property owner. We make it very easy, both risk and hassle-free.
Subletting is a great option, but if you have an issue with the property, you’ll need to work through the subletter. Communication or responsiveness can sometimes be a problem.
Our goal is to provide you with exceptional service and to help you find the right place to live – whether it’s a renting short-term from us or subletting from someone else!
What if I need a UW Madison Sublet?
We serve many UW Madison students and professionals who are searching for short-term housing on or around campus. All of the short-term lease options offered here by Steve Brown Apartments have campus locations, and the majority of our residents sublets also have campus-area locations.
You’ll notice there are no fall short-term leases or sublets listed here – short-term leases with fall start dates are the elusive golden egg. Most UW Madison rentals have late summer or early fall lease start dates that coincide with the start of the school year and run through the end of the school year or a full year.
Steve Brown Apartments does offer a limited number of leases that run from August-December. If you’re interested, please contact us using the form below.

Sublet Questions and Answers
Q. What the difference between sublet and sublease apartments?
A. These two terms basically mean the same thing. In both cases, the owner of the apartment will be the person with their name on the lease. In legal terms, you may sign a subletting agreement with the person renting the apartment, but they are the one who is ultimately responsible.
Q. How do I sublease an apartment?
A. Subletting your own apartment requires an understanding of how the process works and a willingness to actively market your sublet. Download our subletting guide to learn more about subleasing a place.
