Planning Your Visit
To assist you in planning a fun and safe day at UW-Platteville's College of EMS Expo, please review the information below.
Directions and Maps
The UW-Platteville campus is located at the western edge of Platteville. All Expo activities take place on campus in Ottensman Hall, Engineering Hall, and the outdoor spaces adjacent to these two buildings.
Parking on Campus
Because Expo occurs during a normal class day at UW-Platteville, it is important to be familiar with campus parking regulations and approved lots before arriving.
Parking permits are not required for any on-campus parking lots the day of Expo, however, please note that regulations regarding parking on the grass, in fire lanes, in metered spaces, in pedestrian cross walks, in handicapped spaces, etc., will still be enforced. Normal parking time limit regulations for on-street parking west of Chestnut Street will be relaxed for the day of the Expo event.
On-campus parking in Lot 10 (by the stadium) is recommended for buses. On-campus parking in Lots 6, 26, and 30 is recommended for cars. Please note that Lots 11 and 25A will be closed to allow outdoor exhibit space for Expo activities. For lot locations, please view the parking map.
Food Sales and Picnic Locations
Many families and class groups choose to bring brown bag lunches and arrange a meeting time and location for lunchtime. A recommended picnic location is the lawn between the Markee Pioneer Student Center and Ottensman Hall. In case of inclement weather, Ottensman Hall Room 110 will have space for groups to eat.
There will also be food available for purchase at the Expo event. All food sales at Expo benefit UW-Platteville College of EMS student organizations. Food and beverages available for purchase include:
- BBQ Sandwiches
- Walking Tacos
- Bottled water
In addition, all on-campus dining locations accept cash and credit cards and will be open regular hours during the Expo event.
