At 1021 University Avenue, Luther Memorial stands in a vibrant urban context. We are at almost the geographic center of the University of Wisconsin – Madison, within a one-mile walk to the Wisconsin State Capitol and two blocks north of the Southwest bike path. Our location makes us an easy bike, bus or car ride and is within walking distance to many downtown residents.
