Welcome to Southwest Hall
Southwest Hall, completed in 2006, is home to 380 students who will live in 95 four-person suites. Each suite has four single bedrooms, a living room, a dining area with kitchenette, and two bathrooms. There is high speed internet access in every bedroom and elevator access to all floor levels. The entire building is air conditioned and each suite is fully furnished. Each of the six floors has a study room with a computer that can be used for group projects. Other public areas include the main desk, mailroom, lobby, multipurpose room, laundry room, and community room with vending area. Southwest Hall remains open during the official academic year breaks.

Greetings from Southwest Hall!
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! For those of you who will be new to Southwest this year, you’ve picked a great place to live. With programs, activities, and opportunities to meet new people, there is a lot to look forward to as we open our doors for the 2014-2015 academic year. For those of you who are returning to Southwest, welcome back and I hope you’re ready to help make Southwest a great place for yourselves as well as our new students.
While Southwest Hall is an upperclassmen residence hall, there will still be opportunities available for you to learn, grow, and get involved just like the other halls. Southwest 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 aquatic theme of water. Be sure to be on the lookout for signage for more information on this program at move in. Another way you will be able to get involved is Southwest Hall Suite Forum which will meet weekly in the Southwest Hall Multipurpose Room. Suite Forum is a great way for students to find out all of the news and happenings as well as voice opinions that are going on at Southwest Hall and UW-Platteville. Southwest Hall Suite Forum will also have fun activities that will give students the opportunity to get to know each other well.
Southwest Hall prides itself on being passionate about creating inclusive communities and constantly strives to ensure that every student feels safe and comfortable in their home here at UW-Platteville. It is our goal that we can help students grow in their development both personally and academically. If you have questions about how we are accomplishing this, please don’t hesitate to ask.
The experience that you’ll have in Southwest is what you’ll make of it so I hope that you will challenge yourself to take advantage of all the opportunities that will be offered here. 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 Southwest or the Residence Halls in general, feel free to contact myself or another member of our Residence Life team.
