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.

It is hard to believe, but we are already almost at the halfway point of the semester with warm weather approaching and Spring Break! Brockert Hall will close for the week of Spring Break at 6:00pm on Friday, March 10, and will reopen at noon on Sunday, March 19. Students are not able to stay in Brockert Hall over the break, so please plan accordingly (Check your email)! This is a great time to take home winter clothing and other things you find yourself not using. It'll be less things to take home at the end of the school year!
With the first 8 weeks wrapping up, that means midterms are coming up for most of you. So remember to get plenty of sleep and know that there are many resources for tutoring or assistance to help you succeed during these busy times. Just check out Academic Support Programs - https://www.uwplatt.edu/academic-support.
If you haven't already, please remember to sign up for your living headquarters for next year. UW-Platteville enforces the UW Board of Regent two-year residency policy stating all freshmen and sophomore students must live in university residence halls unless they meet established criteria for exemption. Hanging up around the building are postings with information, but you can find more here, along with the application.
Friday Night Clubs are still going strong with Porter Hall starting us off for the month of March (Friday the 3th, Pioneer Show Network). Be sure to check those out, as well as other events provided by CPR, Athletics, CFA and the University.
Safety Tip of the Month: As we approach spring, inclement weather will become more common. Be sure to remain aware of potential for severe weather. In the case of severe weather, be sure to seek out appropriate shelter if your hall. Avoid windows and do not go outside to storm watch.
Keep your head up and give yourself some peace and quiet for a least a few hours!
Stay classy and remember,
EVERY DAY IS A GREAT DAY TO BE A PIONEER!!
