The University of Wisconsin-Platteville has nine traditional residence halls and two suite style residence halls with the ability to house 10 to 3000 people on campus. The residence halls of the University of Wisconsin-Platteville strive to provide safe, clean, comfortable living environments. We hope you enjoy your stay with us!
Southwest Hall will house most of our adult camps or conferences throughout the summer. Southwest Hall is a six story suite style building with the capacity of 380 people in 95 four person suites. Each suite has four individual bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room and kitchenette. The building is air conditioned, has elevator access to all floors, and has common areas such as a laundry room, programming area, community room, and Main Desk.
Rountree Commons opened in Fall 2012. Rountree Commons is a 620 bed air conditioned facility. Individuals staying in Rountree Commons live in two-bedroom suites which share a bathroom and common area with refrigerator, sink and microwave.
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. Conference participants reside in individual rooms that accommodate up to two people. Furnishings include 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 are students employed by the Office of Student Housing 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.
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.
The Jerry & Fran Cooper Living & Learning Center is a retreat center located at the University's Pioneer Farm seven miles southeast of UW-Platteville.
The facility is an ideal location for groups to use for teambuilding and conferences that require overnight accommodations. The Cooper Living & Learning Center is also used for short-term lodging for visitors such as visiting faculty and staff, researchers involved with Pioneer Farm and the Wisconsin Agricultural Stewardship Initiative, and those looking for convenient lodging when hotels in the area have filled up for special events.
There are six suites with two bedrooms per suite; each suite has its own bathroom. Bedrooms are private with two sets of bunk beds in eight of the bedrooms and two single beds in four of the bedrooms, for a maximum capacity of 40 overnight guests. Linens are provided. There is also a lounge, meeting room, a large furnished kitchen for preparing meals, and recreation areas (volleyball, horseshoes, campfire counsel, bikes, board games).
