Welcome to Brockert Hall
Named after J. C. Brockert and built in 1967, Brockert Hall provides accommodations for 180 men and 85 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 and 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 study lounges and the main lobby of Brockert were updated in the spring of 2012. The Karen Cushman Multifunction Room is utilized by the Hall Council and outside organizations and provides and nice space for students and staff to utilize for large activities and events.

I know that the semester is swinging through full force but the time has come to sign up for your living headquarters for next year. Please remember that UW-Platteville enforces the UW Board of Regent two-year residency policy stating all freshmen and sophomore students must live in university residence halls unless they meet established criteria for exemption. Hanging up around the building are postings with information, but you can find more here, along with the application.

Self Care | With strong sickness going around, practicing good hygiene habits is the first step to preventing the spread of illness. Be sure to wash your hands regularly to avoid the spread of germs. If you are not feeling well, be sure to take good care of yourself by getting plenty of rest, washing your hands, and seeking professional help if your illness continues.
Safety Tip of the Month: Mental health issues are quite common for students in their young twenties. It is so important to seek our help and assistance if something isn’t feeling right. Common signs of mental health changes include major changes in appetite, sleeping patterns, energy levels, and interest in certain activities. If you or a friend is experiencing some or all of these symptoms, we encourage you to seek support from our University Counseling Services located on the 2nd Floor of Royce Hall.
Stay classy and remember,
EVERY DAY IS A GREAT DAY TO BE A PIONEER!!
