Welcome to Brockert Hall
Named after J. C. Brockert and built in 1967, Brockert Hall provides accommodations for 180 men and 85 women and is located in the Circle. A very popular hall among first year students, Brockert Hall is ideally located close to the disk golf course, outdoor basketball courts, softball fields, and Memorial Park. Brockert provides and close community atmosphere and is very active in Homecoming. One of the traditional programs hosted by Brockert Hall each spring is the Circle egg hunt in which the grassy area between the circle halls is covered in plastic eggs and filled with candy and prizes. The study lounges and the main lobby of Brockert were updated in the spring of 2012. The Karen Cushman Multifunction Room is utilized by the Hall Council and outside organizations and provides and nice space for students and staff to utilize for large activities and events.
From the Desk of the Resident Director
Hello Brockert Residents!
I hope you are all doing well and gearing up for the end of the semester. For many of you, this will be your first Finals Week. That must be both exciting and terrifying for you, but don’t fret, the Brockert staff is here to assist you! Make sure you are getting plenty of rest both leading up to and during Finals Week. Intensive quiet hours start on December 15, 2013 at 1:00 AM. Intensive Quiet Hours are set in place to provide you with an environment conducive to studying. Please keep noise to a minimum during this time, so as not to distract those who are trying to study/sleep. Unsure of when your Finals are? Look no further than right here.
• Students leaving at the end of the semester must have their loft down by 1:00 a.m., Sunday, December 15.
• Information will be available soon on the loft return schedule.
• Departing students must plan to return their bed to its original condition and return any bed ends that may be stored off campus by this date.
Winterim is coming!
Do you need a place to stay between December 20 and January 5? Our nine traditional style residence halls are closed during these dates of semester break. It is the student’s responsibility to locate an off campus place to stay if needed.
Are you returning Sunday, January 5 to attend the Winterim session? Students returning for the Winterim session may stay in their own rooms in the residence halls. Residence Life applies this charge to your university billing statement. Cost is $115.63 per week. To request Winterim housing, contact Residence Life by Friday, December 6.
With winter slowly making its way to Platteville, I wanted to remind you of UW-Platteville’s stance on the throwing of hard objects and snowballs. Wisconsin Administrative Code (Conduct on University Lands, Chapter UWS 18) (27) THROWING HARD OBJECTS. No person may, in a manner likely to cause physical harm or property damage, throw, drop, kick, hit, or otherwise project any hard object, bottle, can, container, snowball, or other item of a similar nature on university lands or within or from within university buildings or facilities. Snowballs: Persons identified as throwing snowballs at buildings or windows will assume total financial responsibility for the damages attributed to their individual actions or for the damages resulting from a group of snowball throwers with which they are identified. Residents, whose actions contribute to the breaking of their own room windows or the windows of others nearby, assume full financial responsibility for any damages where the culprit is not specifically identified. The cost of a broken window will be assessed by Auxiliary Services Facility Operations staff. Department of Residence Life personnel will consult with the RD of the hall before a decision regarding billing is made.
Throwing objects out Residence Hall Windows
The throwing of objects out of windows is strictly prohibited. Individuals who are identified throwing objects out of windows will face disciplinary action by the Department of Residence Life, in addition to the fee for removing window screens. Individuals may also face actions by the Office of Student Affairs for violation of Chapter 18 of the UW System Policy.
Please be respectful and keep snow on the ground.
If you need anything, as always, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. The Brockert Hall RA staff and I are happy to answer any questions you may have!
Be safe and be well,
Brockert Hall Resident Director
