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.

THE SCHOOL YEAR IS HERE!!!
Welcome new students to Brockert Hall and UW-Platteville and of course welcome back returners! I hope that the first day of classes were well for you as we get under way to the school year. Want to remind you of some important and very helpful people in the building – your RA’s! The Resident Assistants are here to help your transition to college through fun and educational programming, bulletin boards, and other resources on campus. Keeping that in mind, don’t be afraid to meet them, chat with them, or ask them for assistance.
There are plenty of ways to get involved and meet other Brockert residents whether you are returning to the building or are new this fall, such as at our weekly Hall Council meetings. Hall Council provides a number of great opportunities for you such as learning about the events that will be taking place across campus and in Brockert Hall, voicing your opinion on issues pertaining to the Hall, and meeting other residents in the building. If you have any interest in getting involved in other activities on campus or maybe aspire to one day be a Resident Assistant, getting involved in Hall Council is a great place to get started. We will be meeting every Monday night at 9:15pm in the basement KCMR.
Another way to get involved in the hall is through Circle Cup Olympics 2016 happening the first week of October! There is a traveling trophy which at this time resides in Hugunin Hall. Let's get it back! There are sign up sheets at the front desk. Homecoming 2016 is another way to get involved on campus. Homecoming starts Sunday, October 9th and goes through Saturday, October 15th. This is a fantastic way to meet other residents of Brockert and have a little friendly competition between other halls. Talk to your RA or any of our Hall Council Leadership Team to find out more about Homecoming.
Feel free to head over to our Facebook page since I know you want to know more about Brockert Hall and be up to date with what’s happening. There you will find pictures of various events from the year. The Circle, and more specifically Brockert Hall, is a great place to live!
Safety Tip of the Month: Prevention is key to remain safe on campus. Be sure to report any suspicious behavior to University Police. Take some time this month to review the Shots Fired video provided to you on the University Police website. This video talks in depth about how to remain safe should an active shooter situation occur here at Platteville.
Can’t wait to meet you throughout the course of the semester. Feel free to stop by my office to say hello and enjoy a Lifesaver! If you ever have questions throughout the school year, don't be afraid to talk to your RA. That's what they're here for! Let's make this a great year!
Stay classy and remember,
EVERY DAY IS A GREAT DAY TO BE A PIONEER!!
