FROM THE DESK OF THE RESIDENT DIRECTOR
Welcome Summer and New Students!
We are excited to welcome our new first year class of students and all of our returning students back to campus this fall! Welcome to be Pioneer family and welcome to Bridgeway Commons! The staff and I are thrilled to bring you another year of excitement and fun focused on Healthy Living and the Pioneer spirit!
A few websites you will find helpful as you start to prepare for fall:
You will receive your room assignment in mid-July. We recommend that you contact your roommate/suitemates by phone to discuss what to bring and how you may want your room arranged.
Our Move-In/Out website has all you could need and more as you start to plan your move to campus.
If you have questions about lofts, our Bed Loft Information page will set you in the right direction for the application and information on how to assemble. Please wait till you receive your room assignment before reserving your loft. This way you will have the correct loft for the building you are assigned to. All applications for lofts received before August 24, 2018, will ensure delivery of your loft to your room prior to your arrival on September 1, 2018.
If you are coming to campus early with a campus group, team or department, information will be coming to you through that program as to what you need to know and when you need to arrive. Please keep in mind the check-in window is short, so you are able to get to your events.
Bicycle Information is located in this area of our website. Once you have your room assignment you will be able to decide where you want your bike locker and if you want one at all. We encourage students to bring a bike if they enjoy riding. There are great trails around Platteville and on campus to ride a bike.
There will be many things to do and see when you arrive Welcome Weekend. To keep up on all that is going on and all there is to do check out our Welcome Weekend website for locations and times. One of the many things this weekend will be a concert by Skillet. They are a great group with a ton of energy, so be sure to check them out!
We open for the fall semester on September 1st. New students are allowed to move in that day while returning students will need to wait till September 2. There will be more to come and watch the Welcome Weekend website for announcements about Labor Day weekend.
Have a great summer!
