Our summer session is officially in full swing. Rountree is currently closed for the summer. We are currently working on prepping the building and working on a few new projects for the upcoming school year. Rountree is open for tours this summer, so if you are interested in touring one of the suites, please contact the Admissions office by clicking here.
For all the new students coming to Platteville, make sure you are signing up for a New Student Registration (NSR) date. At NSR you will sign up for your fall courses and will have the opportunity to tour some of the different halls on campus including Rountree. The official room placements will be sent out to students via e-mail in July. Thus, please make sure to be checking whichever e-mail is registered to keep an eye out for the room assignment.
If you are interested in ordering a loft for Rountree specifically, please click here. Lofts in Rountree will be delivered and assembled for you in your suite, so the loft can be set up and ready to go if you order in advance! Rountree also has an indoor bike storage room that students can rent space in for $50 for the year and, there are also bike racks by Rountree where students can keep their bicycles at no cost.
We look forward to seeing you all in the fall! Enjoy the summer months and weather!
