The University of Wisconsin-Platteville Office of Event Services facilitates campus resources to provide a memorable and positive experience for visitors to our campus.

Event Productions

After space is reserved and the major details of your event are planned, meet with a member of our staff to identify audio-visual, lighting, sound, and other equipment needed to make the event a success.

Large Event Advanced Planning

Large Event Advanced Planning (LEAP) brings together representatives from various university services to ensure well planned, well organized, and successful events.

An event planner will meet you at the start and guide logistics so you can focus on your goals and objectives. The planner will also identify realistic revenues and expenses, as well as ways to raise and/or save money.

The LEAP process is recommended in certain situations. 

  • Events that require more than two university services
  • Events that involve external guests, government officials, Board of Regent officials, or high-profile events
  • When multiple rooms and/or spaces within multiple buildings are needed
  • When an event is hosted by an off-campus organization
  • Large campus events such as commencement and career fairs
