Planning Your Visit

To assist you in planning a fun and safe day at UW-Platteville's College of EMS Expo, please review the information below.

Directions and Maps

The UW-Platteville campus is located at the western edge of Platteville. All Expo activities take place on campus in Ottensman Hall, Engineering Hall, and the outdoor spaces adjacent to these two buildings.

Parking on Campus

Because Expo occurs during a normal class day at UW-Platteville, it is important to be familiar with campus parking regulations and approved lots before arriving.

Parking permits are not required for any on-campus parking lots the day of Expo, however, please note that regulations regarding parking on the grass, in fire lanes, in metered spaces, in pedestrian cross walks, in handicapped spaces, etc., will still be enforced.

Cars and vans are free to park in any commuter lot, marked in purple on the campus parking map. Buses can drop off at either Engineering Hall or Ottensman Hall and then park in the stadium lot, P10. When P10 is full, buses will need to park in the Memorial Park lot, P31.

Food Sales and Picnic Locations

Many families and class groups choose to bring brown bag lunches and arrange a meeting time and location for lunchtime. A recommended picnic location is the lawn between the Markee Pioneer Student Center and Ottensman Hall. In case of inclement weather, Ottensman Hall Room 110 will have space for groups to eat.

There will also be food available for purchase at the Expo event. All food sales at Expo benefit UW-Platteville College of EMS student organizations. Food and beverages available for purchase include:

  • Pizza
  • Brats
  • BBQ Sandwiches
  • Walking Tacos
  • Chips
  • Soda
  • Bottled water 

In addition, all on-campus dining locations accept cash and credit cards and will be open regular hours during the Expo event.
