The Neighborhood Housing Office’s mission is to provide quality housing and landlords for University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee students. Registering as a Landlord on the Neighborhood Housing Office Listing Service provides many opportunities for landlords to advertise at events and in the office as well as online. By posting on the Neighborhood Housing Listing Service you may now upload images and 360 degree tours of your rental units. In order to list with us you must first agree to the Neighborhood Housing Office Listing Service Policy Agreement.
Access your listings here. You can edit and update them with one click. All listings must be approved by Neighborhood Housing Office staff before they will be active in the Listing Service.

Need forms that you know are legal? You can purchase them through the Wisconsin Legal Bank. Do not use any lease if it is dated before 1999. The office supply store "lease in a box" is not recommended by the Neighborhood Housing Office. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Tenant Resource Center and they can provide free assistance (yes it's for landlords too!).
The Neighborhood Housing Office website is a helpful resource for both landlords and prospective tenants. However, if you notice suspicious activity or are being contacted by students wanting to wire you money particularly from overseas, follow the directions listed on the United States Secret Service website. Above all, remember to use caution and ask questions!
UWM Landlord Training Session
Each Fall the Neighborhood Housing Office in conjunction with the City of Milwaukee Department of Neighborhood Services hosts a community forum to address the needs of UW-Milwaukee, their students, neighbors, and the City of Milwaukee in providing a decent, safe neighborhood for everyone. Attendance at the UWM Landlord Training Course fulfills the Landlord Training requirement for registration on the Neighborhood Housing Office Listing Service.
To help provide quality landlords to students, the Neighborhood Housing Office requires all landlords who own more than four (4) rental units to attend the Department of Neighborhood Services Landlord Training Program, or a training class of an equivalent nature. You will be required to submit a certificate of completion of this training course before your landlord registration will process. For registration information, contact Jeanne Hagner at 286-2954 or email Jeanne at email@example.com. If you have less than five (5) rental units please fill out the Landlord Training Opt-Out Form and return it to the Neighborhood Housing Office for consideration.
The Milwaukee Municipal Court Case Information System has been created to make accessing case information convenient for everyone.

The Homestead Credit is a tax benefit for renters and homeowners with low or moderate incomes. It is designed to lessen the impact of rent and property taxes. Qualifying persons can get back some or all of their state taxes withheld during the year. Those who do not have earnings, or whose earnings were too small to have taxes withheld, can get extra cash back from the State. If you meet all of the qualifications, you must complete a Wisconsin Homestead Credit Claim, Schedule H or Schedule H-EZ, to determine the amount of any benefit available.
Changes to Housing Discrimination Prohibited Ordinance for City of Milwaukee, Section 109-5 states: "No person may engage in any act of discrimination with respect to housing against any individual on the basis of sex, race, religion, color, national orgin or ancestory, age, diability, lawful source of income, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, past or present membership in the military service, familial status, or based upon affiliation with, or perceived affiliation with any of these protected categories."
If you are having issues with your tenants please consider contacting the Neighborhood Housing Office or a COAST Leader for mediation. A Roommate Contract is available online here for tenants to mediate their personal issues.
