Welcome to Morrow Hall
Morrow Hall, named after Homer B. Morrow and built in 1967, provides accommodations for approximately 68 women and 197 men. Morrow Field, a softball diamond, is located nearby. One of the traditions in Morrow Hall is the annual service project: "Morrow Hall Works Week"!

Before checking out of your room, remember to: Return your loft on Thursday, May 11th. • Schedule a date and time to check out with your Resident Assistant. • Return your room furniture back to its original location. • Unplug, defrost, and clean your refrigerator. (Refrigerators take a while to defrost, remember to unplug your refrigerator 24 hours in advance). • Take all of your trash out to the dumpster. • Complete your forwarding address in PASS. • Remove bikes from bike lockers. • Return all keys to your RA or the RA checking you out of your residence hall room.

Summer Housing & Summer Storage: Summer Storage costs $150 per person and information is available on the Residence Life website. You can also chose to live in Rountree Commons for the summer. You don't even have to be taking a class and you have the convenience of living on campus!
Welcome Crew Applications: Welcome Crew staff help get the building ready for our opening day, greet parents and students as they enter the building, help students move into the halls, provide information about UW - Platteville, answer questions of students and families, and represent the University. Welcome Crew members will be allowed to move in a day early. Each Welcome Crew member will receive a free T-shirt, selected meals, and a significant leadership experience. If you are interested in being a member of the Welcome Crew, applications are available at the front desk. Applications are due to your Fall 2017 Resident Director by May 5th.
Also, please check out a couple important pieces of news:
- Utilize your resources to wrap up the semester strong! Academic Support Programs, your professors' office hours, and your RA are each a great resource to help you succeed. Respectful 20-hour quiet hours begin May 14th @ 1 AM to help people study.
- ALL bicycles that are left in the racks, bike lockers, or around campus will be cut off and disposed of this summer. If you want to leave your bike on campus, it must be taken to the Royce North bike rack or a summer locker can be rented at the Residence Life office.
- Congratulations to all of our graduates and their families/friends! Best of luck with your future journeys as Pioneer Alums!
- Take a look at the Morrow Hall Facebook Page in order to receive the most up to date events happening around campus.
