Welcome to McGregor Hall
McGregor Hall, named after past UWP president Duncan McGregor and built in 1961, accommodates approximately 162 men and 60 women. McGregor Hall, with its convenient location, offers many benefits to its residents. In addition to kitchenettes on each floor, a variety of other facilities such as a computer lounge, a conference room and recreation areas are provided throughout the hall to meet the needs of residents. McGregor Hall is equipped with an elevator, therefore students with physical mobility concerns will find it very accommodating out of the ten residence halls on campus. The first and second floors are reserved for upperclassmen only, therefore the majority of students living in McGregor are not freshmen. The residents of McGregor Hall are very supportive of the annual Luau sponsored by McGregor and Wilgus Halls every fall. McGregor staff as well as the Hall Council Executive Board also put on Duncan Diner every February.
From the Desk of the Resident Director
Greetings McGregor Hall!
Can you believe that we are already almost a full month into the spring semester? This semester is already off to a roaring start and it is important that you are up to date on what’s in store for the month of February in McGregor Hall.
First off, room reservations for the 2014-2015 school year are beginning already on February 10th. The room reservations process is a bit different than in the past. We are proud to announce that the Department of Residence Life is moving to an online process and you can reserve your space from the comforts of your own room! Please be sure to click here and fully familiarize yourself with this new process. If you are at all confused during this process, please feel free to consult your RA, SA or myself for guidance. The important dates to remember for this process are as follows:
- February 10, 2014: Same room registration begins at 8:00 am for residents wishing to keep their current room for next year.
- February 17, 2014: Students with junior or senior academic standing (60 credits and above) may wish to sign up for any open space on campus.
- February 24, 2014: Students with freshman and sophomore academic standing may wish to sign up for any open space on campus.
Please be aware that we are continuing to enforce the UW-System 2 year live-on requirement. This means that all current freshmen are required to register for housing for the 2014-2015 school year. There are a few exemptions to this rule, and those exemptions may be found here. Please also note that when registering for a room that you are signing a full year contract to live with us. After registering for a room, you may NOT cancel your housing contract for any reason.
For those interested in the Resident Assistant position for next school year, the process is well underway! We would like to thank all of those that took the time to apply and interview with us. Notifications of employment will be sent out Monday, February 10, 2014.
McGregor Hall has a very exciting February coming up! There are plenty of opportunities for a good time right here in the building this month. We will be continuing the Saturday Night Life programs on most Saturday evenings in the McGregor Café for the remainder of the semester. Movies begin at 7 pm, so be sure to check out the postings each week through the hall for the week’s show!
The McGregor Staff and Hall Council Executive Board has been busy preparing for the 10th Annual Duncan Diner. This is a traditional program in which the basement of McGregor Hall is transformed into a 50’s style diner. The evening’s menu includes hot dogs, milkshakes, and potato chips for the low price of a $1 donation. All proceeds from Duncan Diner will be donated to Wisconsin Badger Camp. We hope you will stop down and join the fun and be a part of something great!
The last item I would like to touch on is the change of evening for McGregor Hall Council. Our meetings will be on Tuesday evenings this semester at 9:15 pm in the McGregor Café. I would encourage everyone to attend as this is a great opportunity to gain some points for your wing in our wing wars competition as well as get caught up on valuable campus information. We invite everyone to come on down and participate in our meetings. Without your input we cannot make McGregor the hall you want it to be!
As always, please be sure to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
