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.

Welcome back! I hope you had a safe and restful break and are ready to tackle Spring Semester. Classes start January 20th! Although we don't have a lot of snow now, remember that Snow Emergency Parking is in effect. This means when a SEP is declared students may have to move their cars from street or parking lot spaces. Pay attention to the signage around the halls for more information on SEP.
