WELCOME TO Pickard HALL
Pickard Hall, named after Josiah L. Pickard and built in 1969, houses approximately 169 men and 106 females and is located in “The Circle." Very popular with first year students, Pickard Hall provides a close community atmosphere for its residents. Starting in the fall of 2013, Pickard Hall will be hosting a First Year Experience Interest Community (To learn more about Interest Communities, click here).
The structure of Pickard is unique in that it has a center stairwell in addition to those at the east and west ends of the building. The study lounges and main lobby of Pickard were updated with new seating and tables in the spring of 2012. New mini fridges were placed in all of the student rooms in the spring of 2011 and spring of 2012.
Pickard Hall sponsors an annual "Fright Fest" haunted house-type activity at Halloween as a charity fundraiser. This event is open not only to UW-Platteville students, but to community members as well.
From the Desk of the Resident Director
Welcome to the end of the semester! I hope that the semester has treated you well, you have learned some things both inside and outside the classroom, and you have had fun!
Semester closing information was sent out on December 2nd, and more information has been provided by your RAs in your closing wing meetings. Start planning now for what you may want to bring home with you to give yourself enough time and space to pack. The biggest things to remember are unplugging all electronics (except aquariums) in your room and defrosting your freezer. All residents need to sign up for a time to check out with their RA, at LEAST 24 hours prior to when you would like to leave. Pickard Hall closes at 6:00 PM on Friday, December 19, so you will need to plan to leave before that time. If you have extenuating circumstances, please contact me directly.
Pickard Hall will be closed until 10:00 AM on Thursday, January 15, 2015. If you will be taking a Winterim class, and would like to stay in your room in Pickard, you will need to head over to Residence Life in Royce Hall to sign up.
Wishing you all the best for the end of the semester and your final exams! As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to myself, your RA or SA, and we will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have! Happy Holidays!
Dan Foley, M. Ed.
Pickard Hall Resident Director
