WELCOME TO Pickard HALL
Pickard Hall, named after Josiah L. Pickard and built in 1969, houses 275 residents, approximately 205 men and 70 women, and is located in “The Circle." Very popular with first year students, Pickard Hall provides a close community atmosphere for its residents. Pickard Hall is home to the First Year Experience Interest Community which was started in 2013 (to learn more about Interest Communities, click here).
The structure of Pickard is unique in that it has a center stairwell in addition to those at the east and west ends of the building. Another unique feature are the booths in the basement, which are excellent for studying.
Pickard Hall sponsors an annual "Fright Fest" haunted house-type activity at Halloween as a charity fundraiser. This event is open not only to UW-Platteville students, but to community members as well. In the Fall and Spring, “The Circle” competes in our very own Circle Olympics, where each building can participating in events to win the cup. These are both amazing opportunities for residents to get involved, make new friends, and gain valuable leadership experience!
From the Desk of the Resident Director
Hello Pickard Residents!
Opening is right around the corner and we are so excited to welcome students back to campus or welcome our new students home for the very first time. A lot of information will be coming your way in the next few weeks but I wanted to fill you in on some important details now.
Every student will need to fill out a Personal Data Form. Please print this form off and fill it out prior to your arrival to campus.
Interested in renting a loft? Now is a great time to reserve your loft for the 2018-2019 year. Your loft can be rented for $149.99. Check out our loft page!
There are bike racks located outside of the building. If you are interested in renting a bike locker to keep your bike out of the elements, the cost is $30 for a semester or $50 for a year. To do so, fill out the Bike Rental Form.
Do you still have questions about what to bring to campus? Check out these two resources: The Residence Hall Handbook (Soon to be updated for the 2018-19 academic year) and the Guide to Living on Campus. Both documents are very important to read and review regarding policies in our building.
Feel free to send me an email with any questions or concerns prior to move-in! I'm looking forward to a great year with all of you!
