Welcome to Brockert Hall
Named after J. C. Brockert and built in 1967, Brockert Hall provides accommodations for 200 men and 60 women and is located in the Circle. A very popular hall among first year students, Brockert Hall is ideally located close to the disk golf course, outdoor basketball courts, softball fields, and Memorial Park. Brockert provides a close community atmosphere and is very active in Homecoming. One of the traditional programs hosted by Brockert Hall each spring is the Circle egg hunt in which the grassy area between the circle halls is covered in plastic eggs and filled with candy and prizes. The building had a light update this year of 2017-18 with new carpet, paint, and decorations. The Karen Cushman Multifunction Room is utilized by the Hall Council and outside organizations and provides a nice space for students and staff to utilize for large activities and events.
