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.
From the Desk of the Resident Director
Summer is finally here and the Residence Life team is in full swing prepping for students this fall!
I hope that you are all enjoying your summer thus far, and you are excited for new opportunities awaiting you this upcoming academic year!
My name is Rebecca Groves; everyone calls me Becca. I will be starting my sixth year here at UW-Platteville and I spent my first two years here in Hugunin Hall. My last three years in Dobson Hall. This year I am starting a new adventure in Bridgeway Commons.
For all the new students coming to Platteville, make sure you are signing up for a New Student Registration (NSR) date. At NSR you will sign up for your fall courses and will have the opportunity to tour some of the different halls on campus including Rountree Commons, Bridgeway Commons, and Hugunin Hall.
The official room placements will be sent out to students via e-mail in mid-July. Please make sure to be checking whichever e-mail is registered to keep an eye out for the room assignment.
I am looking forward to seeing you all and I hope you enjoy your summer!
