Hello residence hall students.
This email is targeted to current sophomore, junior and senior students (fall, 2014 junior standing and above). As we hope you have already heard, we are running Southwest Hall room sign up early this year for students who fit the criteria listed in the previous sentence of this email. Southwest Hall provides great amenities to our older students including a larger kitchen area, common area space, 2 bathrooms and and your own bedroom. We are hoping to avoid the long lines of the Southwest Hall Lottery night, traditionally held in February, by having this early sign up. All details are located at the link listed at the end of this paragraph, and if you are a current Southwest Hall student, your sign up begins TONIGHT for next year. You can access the application at this link and you will need to complete this and bring your $150 prepayment (applied to your spring, 2015 room rental fee) on the appropriate day for your situation. Here is the link: http://www3.uwplatt.edu/residence-life/current-student-room-reservations. Also, please do "like" your hall's facebook page as we do add important information there as well.
NEW for next year! We just received final approval to offer gender inclusive housing in Southwest Hall only, meaning that we will have mixed suites by gender. Students can now live as they are comfortable or how they identify, by sharing space with men and women, if they desire. For example, three women could live with a man, or two women and two men could live together etc. This is not required, so if you aren't interested in this option, you do not have to sign up with a mixed gender group. We will still have single gender suites in Southwest Hall for students to choose as well. The inclusive housing option will only be available in Southwest Hall. Talk with your friends and come prepared to sign up as a group for your suite.
Make sure you follow up according to the guidelines posted on our web page so you don't loose your chance to live in Southwest Hall. Please do not respond to this email as it is intended for information purposes only. Questions can be directed to your Resident Director. Thank you.
