Welcome to Brockert Hall
Named after J. C. Brockert and built in 1967, Brockert Hall provides accommodations for 180 men and 85 women and is located in the Circle. A very popular hall among first year students, Brockert Hall is ideally located close to the disk golf course, outdoor basketball courts, softball fields, and Memorial Park. Brockert provides and close community atmosphere and is very active in Homecoming. One of the traditional programs hosted by Brockert Hall each spring is the Circle egg hunt in which the grassy area between the circle halls is covered in plastic eggs and filled with candy and prizes. The study lounges and the main lobby of Brockert were updated in the spring of 2012. The Karen Cushman Multifunction Room is utilized by the Hall Council and outside organizations and provides and nice space for students and staff to utilize for large activities and events.
From the Desk of the Resident Director
Happy Summer BROCKERT!!!
I sure hope you have been taking advantage of and enjoying the relaxing moments that come your way. Here at UW-Platteville we have started to prepare for your arrival or return! Which, by the way, will be Saturday, August 29 for our new folks! The 2015-2016 school year is going to be a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious one... if you choose that option, which I hope you do! So to get you ready for that (new students and returners alike), start to prepare mentally to write a new chapter of your life. Give yourself some direction - what are some goals that you are setting to look forward to? Take some time this summer to surround yourself with positivity. When we're positive, our brains are more motivated, engaged, creative, energetic, resilient, and productive. Start making good habits now!
I'll take a break from the motivational speech for now and give you some resources! Check out our Guide to Living on Campus. Hopefully many of your questions will be answered here. Not a new student? That's ok, you will find all of the dates and times for move in here. We also have a Facebook page which you can keep up to date with things happening in the building, so feel free to 'like' it and join the fun! With that, get excited!
I want to leave you with a quote from the late Rita Pierson who says,
"Every child (student) deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be."
While living in Brockert Hall, I hope I can be that adult. But I hope you take advantage of what we have to offer, get involved and be engaged, and I hope you challenge yourself to become the best you can possibly be! I can't wait to meet you and grow with you.
Stay classy, enjoy summer and remember,
EVERY DAY IS A GREAT DAY TO BE A PIONEER!!
