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 May Y’all!
Can you believe that the end of the year is already here? As a reminder, we have the Hall Involvement Team cookout on May 7th from 12:00 noon – 3:00 pm by the gazebo on the east side of Dobson Hall.
