Welcome to Melcher Hall

Melcher Hall, named after Milton L. Melcher and built in 1966, is home for approximately 255 men. Melcher Hall residents are active in numerous campus and community events. Melcher Hall residents enjoy a recently renovated Party/Game Room and basement, which includes a newer kitchen for special meals, television area, and meeting area. 

From the Desk of the Resident Director

Happy November Melcher!

I hope you all enjoyed your fall break and are ready to tackle the last few weeks of this semester.

If you're wondering to yourself when the next break is, that would be Thanksgiving break. Thanksgiving break begins Thursday November 27th and lasts throughout the weekend. If you would like to stay in Melcher over the break please sign-up to stay at the front desk. This sign-up sheet is very important and lets us know who is still in the buildng in case of an emergency. It is also important to know that the front desk will have very limited hours over Thanksgiving Break, and will only be open for an hour each day. This begins Wednesday afternoon, and regular hours resume Sunday evening. The hours for the desk will be posted outside the front desk before break begins.

If you are planning on heading out for Thanksgiving break there are somethings for you to remember to do before you leave. Please shut off all alarms clocks, close your windows, and remember to lock your door. This is also a good time to think about taking things home that you may need to have over Winter break. Winter break residents are not allowed to stay in Melcher, so if you were planning on bringing alot of times home, Thanksgiving break may be the perfect time to start taking some of that stuff home with you.

As winter is fast approaching please keep these things in mind. When it snows please take your time traveling. Whether you are heading to class, to visit friends, going home or just going to walmart, give yourself extra time to get there. The roads and a hills of Platteville can be very steep and slippery in winter. If you have a bicycle on campus, you may store that bike in your room. Before you bring your bike in make sure you talk to your roommate and get their ok. Additionally bikes may only be brought into and out of the bulding once per year. This helps to ensure that we are keeping the rooms, hallways, and stairs in the best possible condition.

Melcher's Hall Forum is continueing to be up and running. We will be having meetings every Wednesday in the west side basement, staring at 9pm. These meetings are a great source of information, a way to spread word about what events your clubs and organizations may be putting on, and great fun. The meetings begin with current events, move on to an open floor time, continue with the weekly Melcher Man and Melcher Moron portion, and conclude with a Wing War event. If you would like to get on the Hall Forum's agenda please email either Christopher Goodenough, or Matthew Erickson.


I hope that you are enjoying your fall semester.

Every day is a great day to be a Pioneer,

James Zarling
Melcher Hall Resident Director
