Dobson Hall

Welcome to Dobson Hall

Dobson Hall, named after George R. Dobson and built in 1965, provides a living environment for men and women. Dobson is one of the larger residence halls on campus with approximately 320 residents. The hall is very active in hall and campus sponsored events. Each fall Dobson staff and residents host Trick or Treat, a safe Halloween event for the children and their families in the Platteville community. Over 300 families participate each year. During the spring semester, Dobson hosts Jail N Bail, an annual charity event, where students can "arrest" their friends and hall staff. The charities for the event are selected each year by the Dobson Hall Forum, the Hall Involvement Team

Happy Summer, Ya’ll!

The 2016-2017 academic year is over!

Summer Housing |
You can still register to  live in Rountree Commons for the summer. You can contract for a week, month, or the whole summer. You do not even have to be taking a class and you have the convenience of living on campus!

Welcome Crew Applications |
Welcome Crew staff help get the building ready for our opening day, greet parents and students as they enter the building, help students move into the halls, provide information about UW - Platteville, answer questions of students and families, and represent the University. Welcome Crew members will be allowed to move in a day early. Each Welcome Crew member will receive a free T-shirt, selected meals, and a significant leadership experience. If you are interested in being a member of the Welcome Crew, feel free to email me. If you are no longer planning to be a member of Welcome Crew, I will need to know no later than July 14, 2017.

Hall Involvement Team |
The Hall Involvement team provides a great opportunity for you to get involved, plan activities for the hall, and allow you to meet new friends! If you are interested in running for a position for the 2017-2018 academic year, let your Resident Assistant know upon your arrival in August!

In other news |
ALL bicycles that are left in the racks, bike lockers, or around campus will be cut off and disposed of this summer. If you want to leave your bike on campus, it must be taken to the Royce North bike rack or a summer locker can be rented at the Residence Life office.
Take a look at the Dobson Hall Facebook Page in order to receive the most up to date events happening around campus.

If you have any questions about anything Residence Life related, we are still here to answer your questions.

We had a great time with you during the school year! We are looking forward to seeing you again in the Fall. Have a great summer.
