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 governance group.

Registration for Fall 2015 classes started this month. If you have not scheduled to meet with your advisor please do so. This is a busy time of year and the sooner you are able to schedule the meeting the better. If you have a hold on your account you will want to get that addressed before your registration date as it will stop you from being able to register. If you have questions about registration feel free to talk to your RA.
Friday, April 15th, the Friday Night Club event is a “formal” dance that will make you want to grab your dress clothes and dancing shoes. Mark your calendar for Friday, April 15th from 8pm-midnight in Velzy Commons spring formal will be a night to remember. Wear whatever you have, that old prom outfit or hit up the thrift shop! The theme is the 1950s, so if you have a poodle skirt, pull that out! We hope that you are able to attend!
Please check your email and take the survey about your RA. They would like to hear your feedback.
Closing is right around the corner and information will be coming out about those details very soon. Please ask hall staff if you have questions, but all information will be out shortly. The halls close at 6pm on Friday, May 13, 2016, and you must leave no later the 24 hours after your last final.
Lastly, if you are returning to Dobson Hall next year, you will NOT be able to participate in our summer storage program. If you are returning to campus and are living in a different hall all of the information about this program can be found by clicking HERE.
