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
Greetings McGregor Residents!
I hope you are off to a great summer vacation and finding some time to relax after lots of hard work this past year. It is very quiet here in the building, but it is never too soon to be thinking about gearing up for another great year! As you are taking time away from campus this summer, please be sure to keep in mind all the fantastic new opportunities that you may get to take advantage of this upcoming fall. Whether you are returning to the hall, returning from a different building, or a new freshmen or transfer student to campus we have lots of items to keep in mind as we move towards the fall.
Tours: McGregor isn’t completely empty of students this summer as we continue to be the tour hall on campus. We are hosting daily tours to our regular visitors and will continue to host tours during New Student Registration. 2014-2015 room assignments will not go out to our incoming freshmen until mid-July, so please be sure to take advantage of our various touring opportunities during your New Student Registration day. We will be showing a room in McGregor that is a great model of all of our traditional halls across campus. You will also get the opportunity to see a suite in both Rountree Commons and Bridgeway Commons. Seeing a room is your best way to feel prepared for move-in this fall!
Hall Council: Becoming a member of the McGregor Hall Council this fall is a fantastic way to kick start your leadership opportunities here at UW-Platteville. Hall Council is a hall governance group that works to make necessary changes in the hall as well as provide fun programs and social opportunities to get to know others across the building. There are three opportunities for executive board spots this fall and elections will run in the first couple weeks of the school year. For those that aren’t interested in the executive board, we also will be looking for wing representatives to attend the hall council meetings.
Programs: McGregor has many opportunities for programs right off the bat once school starts. We will be hosting an opening program before classes even start themed around our opening them of McGregor Hall… Get Animated. Be sure to be on the lookout for signage for more information on this program at move in. We will also have the McGregor Wilgus Luau on September 11th from 7 to 9 pm in between the two building. This is a great social program open to the campus where a lot of fun is had! We will also have lots of opportunities to get involved in the hall by participating in Homecoming this year. Be sure to ask your RA or look for more information in September about these opportunities!
For now, be sure to enjoy your summer and find some time to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather that is typical with summer. If you have any questions about life in McGregor or the Residence Halls in general, feel free to contact myself or another member of our Residence Life team.
