Dobson Hall


Welcome to Dobson Hall

Dobson Hall, named after George R. Dobson and built in 1965, provides a living environment for men and women. Dobson is one of the larger residence halls on campus with approximately 320 residents. The hall is very active in hall and campus sponsored events. Dobson Hall hosts multiple Living and Learning Communities.

The benefits of living within a Living Learning Community (LLC):

  •     Enhanced academic and social opportunities
  •     Improved grade point average
  •     Greater involvement in learning
  •     Increased satisfaction with your UW-Platteville experience
  •     Friendships with classmates who may be in the same classes and programs
  •     Stronger academic relationships and better connections with faculty members

The Living Learning Communities hosted within Dobson Hall are, Criminal Justice, Explore EMS, Women in Stem, and Education.

Each fall Dobson staff and residents host Trick or Treat, a safe Halloween event for the children and their families in the Platteville community.

Safety Tip of the Month | Prevent the Illness 
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.

Student Health Services on campus offers free flu shots to all students, so take advantage of this if you haven’t yet!
