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.

Safety Tip of the Month: Prevention is key to remain safe on campus. Be sure to report any suspicious behavior to University Police. Take some time this month to review the Shots Fired video provided to you on the University Police website. This video talks in depth about how to remain safe should an active shooter situation occur here at Platteville.
I am looking forward to meeting all of you and having a great year! Feel free to stop by my office and introduce yourself! If you ever have any questions, don’t be afraid to ask myself, your senior assistant or your resident assistant. We are here to help you have a great year!
