While UWSP infuses the small city with vibrant nightlife and culture, the area is also home to plenty of families, and has been consistently ranked as Relocate America’s “Best Places to Live” since 2007. A strong industry with a mix of blue and white collar jobs keeps the population diverse. Outdoor recreation—including several parks and a 26-mile hiking and walking loop called the Green Circle Trail—will keep you active during the summer months, while the downtown area has plenty of entertainment options in the form of shops, restaurants, a farmer’s market, and a small bar scene.
Because the UWSP’s campus is located north of the city center, the area surrounding campus, as well as the neighborhoods to the north of it are densely populated by students. It's a student’s housing market, so you’ll be hard pressed to find a block or a complex that doesn’t house at least one Pointer. But, some of your best rental options will be found in this region. Cheap apartments are aplenty, with two bedroom apartments ranging from $500 - $650.
North of Interstate 39 the neighborhoods are quiet and safe, and there are plenty of rental homes, condominiums and townhomes for rent. Yes, there are still students in this area, but more discerning management companies will weed out the rowdy, so student occupants farther north in Stevens Point tend to be better behaved. Two bedroom apartments here range from $650 - $800.
Farther south and east of the city center, you’ll find homes in more suburban feeling communities on the route to neighboring Park Ridge. Apartments as well as rental homes are available throughout this region, in quiet, safe and established neighborhoods. Two bedrooms rental properties in this area also range from $650 - $800.
If you’re relocating with a furry companion, be prepared to put some time and legwork into securing a pet friendly apartment rental. Many landlords and management companies have had bad experiences with students and pets, so dog friendly apartments are particularly hard to come by. Additionally, once you’ve found a place, you may have to shill out a large deposit or pay an additional pet fee.
Overall, however, you’re bound to have a comfortable and pleasant experience in your new city, so welcome to Stevens Point!
