The International Student Services office is located at 326 Warner Hall. The International Student Advisor is available to provide pre-admission information to prospective international students and to assist new students through arrival with activities including airport pickup, housing, orientation, health insurance, and the registration process. International students pursuing their studies may also contact the International Student Advisor to obtain information regarding general university requirements, campus and community activities, as well as personal counseling to alleviate culture shock, homesickness, and personal concerns.

The International Student Advisor acts as a liaison between students, their governments, and the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, and assists students with interpreting federal regulations pertaining to their F-1 or J-1 status such as employment, taxes, travel, extension of stay, and transfer. International Student Services sponsors cultural and social events during which international students have the opportunity to develop contacts within the university and Platteville communities so that their stay in the United States will be a richer experience.
