Residence of UW System President, Ray Cross.

Located on a hilltop overlooking the Highlands area of Madison's west side, Brittingham House is the official residence of the UW System president.

Thomas E. and Mary Brittingham built the elegant Georgian-style house in 1916 as their third residence. In 1955, their children donated the house and its 15-acre grounds to the University of Wisconsin. It became the official residence of the UW System president in 1977.

According to Board of Regents policy, the UW System president is required to live in Brittingham House as a condition of employment.
