Located at the foot of Lake Winnebago in the east end of Wisconsin, Fond Du Lac features great educational opportunities, a stellar setting to raise a family and some of the cheapest apartment living in the Midwest. Read Guide >
Fond Du Lac is in no way the “big” city that Milwaukee (its southern neighbor) is, but it doesn’t need that reputation to appeal to people of all ages. College students come here to attend one of the three colleges (Marina University, University of Wisconsin-FDL campus and Moraine Park Tech), families live here for the safe community, and young professionals live here for the easy commute time, job opportunities and cheap apartment living.
How cheap you ask? Well, let’s just say after looking over our apartment listings, you too will be pretty fond of “Fondy.”
Alright, here’s a little tease:
1 BRs are abundant in FDL, making it easy and affordable to rent on your own. Ranging between $500-$800 (more expensive for a newer apartment). It’s also good to keep in mind that the crime rate in Fond Du Lac is extremely low and the city recently ranked #18 for the most secure cities to live. Yet another reason all the single ladies shouldn’t fear living on their own in an affordable 1 BR.
If 2 BRs are more your speed, FDL has plenty of those to offer. Expect to pay between $570-$830 for a 2 BR. A word of advice: the more north, even into North FDL, the cheaper the rents. In North FDL you can grab a 2 BR/1100 sq. ft. apartment for $729 a month. If you have some wiggle room with your budget, opt for life on the golf course, as the more expensive communities are located on the putting green. Amenities aren’t huge in Fond du Lac but most apartments come with either free parking or assigned spots for a small fee ($30).
Making the move with a pet? Fond du Lac has you covered. Most pets are allowed with a deposit—you may want to leave behind the pet monkey or the pet snake—and often a pet interview or monthly pet rent (@ $25).
The cost of living here is about 7% lower than the national average, so we have no doubts that you will find a great apartment on the cheap. Once you’re settled, take some time to enjoy all the Farmer’s Markets, shopping and activities Fond Du Lac has to offer. Don’t put it off any longer, snag your new Fond Du Lac apartment today!
