*** Due to the tornado that damaged three residence halls the night of June 16, 2014, no campers will be assigned to Southwest Hall, Bridgeway Commons or Rountree Commons. All campers will have lodging in traditional residence halls like Dobson, Melcher or McGregor Hall. Sorry for the inconvenience. See more about those halls here. ***
The University of Wisconsin-Platteville has nine traditional residence halls and three suite-style residence halls with the ability to house 10 to 3,000 people on campus. Our staff strives to provide safe, clean, comfortable living environments. We hope you enjoy your stay with us!
For adult conference goers
Southwest Hall, completed in 2006, is an air-conditioned, six-story, suite-style building with a capacity for 380 people. There are 95, fully-furnished, four-person suites with each suite containing four single bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, dining area and kitchenette. The building has elevator access to all floors, which have common areas such as a laundry room, study room with computer and a community room with vending area. Southwest Hall has a main desk in the lobby and Wi-Fi throughout the building.
For youth camps wanting air-conditioned housing
Rountree Commons opened in fall 2012 and is a 620-bed, air-conditioned facility. Located a short distance from our football stadium, the building contains four-person, fully-furnished suites with double occupancy bedrooms, with a separated toilet and shower areas, and a kitchenette with refrigerator, sink, and microwave. There is elevator access to all floor levels, Wi-Fi access throughout the building, and keyless entry to the building.

Generally for New Student Registration and summer school students
New in fall 2013, Bridgeway Commons is an air-conditioned, semi-suite style building that has a capacity of 440 people. Each unit is fully-furnished and contains two double occupancy bedrooms and a bathroom. Each of the floors has a kitchen, lounge and laundry facilities, and Wi-Fi is throughout the building. In addition, Bridgeway Commons has elevator access to all floor levels, a lobby area, common spaces, meeting rooms, multipurpose rooms, recreation room, a fireplace, and a front desk and recycling services.
Traditional Residence Halls
For youth camps
Any of our nine traditional halls will house the youth camps or conferences throughout the summer, as well as any overflow housing for the adult groups. These buildings are not air-conditioned, so having specific rooms for staff or a camp office would have to be requested ahead of time. Basically, Wi-Fi is provided throughout and these buildings offer double occupancy rooms that are furnished with one small refrigerator, two beds, two desks, two chairs, two dressers, and two closets. One bathroom per wing is shared by up to 30 people of the same gender.
Summer Housing Assistants
Summer Housing Assistants are students employed by the Office of Residence Life to provide coverage and presence within the residence halls. These students prepared the building for your stay, run all of the check-ins and check-outs, provide desk hours, and other services. Summer Housing Assistants can be reached by cell phone throughout your stay.
Housing Check-In and Check-Out
Summer Housing Assistants are available to check-in conference attendees within a one-hour time period for camps with up to 100 campers, and a two-hour time period for camps with over 100 campers. If additional check-in hours are required, the conference is assessed a charge. Check-in time will be established by this office and the sponsoring group. Any group having special check-in needs may negotiate other arrangements.
