The only exclusively freshmen residence hall on campus, Bradley Residence Hall is a popular option for many students embarking on their Wisconsin Experience at UW-Madison. Bradley is home to the Bradley Learning Community, which focuses on the transition from high school to being a Badger. This high-energy community offers daily events that always give residents something to do when they're out of the classroom. Did we mention that many of these events involve awesome trips and direct small group contact with faculty from across campus? Because they do.

Bradley is located across the street from the Four Lakes Market (one of six dining markets on campus), tutoring services, the satellite clinic for University Health Services, and a technology learning center all housed within Dejope Hall. Bradley is also nestled right up against the beautiful Lake Mendota and green space that is utilized for many Recreational Sports-sponsored activities. About 60 percent of residents who live here as a freshman choose to return to University Housing for a second year, and if that doesn't say something great about the experience that residents have while living here, we don't know what will!
