McGregor Hall

Welcome to McGregor Hall

McGregor Hall, named after past UWP president Duncan McGregor and built in 1961, accommodates approximately 162 men and 60 women. McGregor Hall, with its convenient location, offers many benefits to its residents. In addition to kitchenettes on each floor, a variety of other facilities such as a computer lounge, a conference room and recreation areas are provided throughout the hall to meet the needs of residents. McGregor Hall is equipped with an elevator, therefore students with physical mobility concerns will find it very accommodating out of the ten residence halls on campus. The first and second floors are reserved for upperclassmen only, therefore the majority of students living in McGregor are not freshmen. The residents of McGregor Hall are very supportive of the annual Luau sponsored by McGregor and Wilgus Halls every fall. McGregor staff as well as the Hall Council Executive Board also put on Duncan Diner every February. 

From the Desk of the Resident Director

Happy November, McGregor!

I hope all of you are gearing up for Thanksgiving Break!  It's almost here.  The truth is November goes by fast.  Before you know it the semester will be over.  Please take a look at the following information and make sure you are ready for November events, Thanksgiving, and yes… the end of the semester.

Study hard in November but make sure you make time for fun. The residence halls will host two other FNCs during the month of November. Join Hugunin Hall November 13th as they host “Java Jams.” Then battle with Dobson Hall, November 20th, as they host “Battleship.”  Cooper Living and Learning Center will also be hosting the 1st Annual Fall Bash!  Free shuttles will be available in front of the MPSC.  The event is 1:00-5:00 PM on Saturday, November 14.  There will be tours of Cooper, tours of Pioneer Farm, a hayride, bonfire, outdoor games, and snacks.  If you are curious what Cooper is all about, you don't want to miss this event!

Thanksgiving Break
McGregor Hall will close for students not registered to stay for the break beginning at 6:00 PM on Wednesday, November 25th. The halls reopen for students beginning at noon on Sunday, November 29th. If you would like to stay in McGregor for all or part of Thanksgiving Break, please follow this link to sign up. There is no charge to stay for the break.

Resident Spring Intent Forms
All residents will be asked to complete an intent form for the upcoming spring semester. These forms are used to determine room changes, open spaces, etc. All residents of UW-Platteville are held to a full academic year contract. If rooms are available, some residents are able to change rooms within a hall or move to a different location on campus.

Note: No students living in the suite-style halls may move to a traditional hall per contract terms.

Students interested in moving into McGregor Hall for the spring 2016 semester may email me at to express interest and be put on a waiting list. Notification of placement will be sent out via email in early December. Moves will occur before the end of semester.

Reading Emails
Every resident of McGregor Hall received an email on Monday, November 2nd detailing the process of Thanksgiving Break and providing important information for the end of the semester. Please read both documents thoroughly.

Have a wonderful November!

As always, please be sure to let me know if you have any questions or concerns by stopping by my office or sending me an email at

Be safe and be well,

Ian Dreger
McGregor Hall Resident Director
