Markee Pioneer Student Center

Located at the crossroads of campus in the center of the academic community, the Markee Pioneer Student Center opened on April 1, 2002. “The Markee” is more than just a building, it’s an experience! The Markee brings the campus community together to foster learning, create an inclusive community, serve the campus and the larger community, empower leaders, and celebrate the Pioneer Spirit. The Markee is the community center for UW-Platteville, where the convergence of academic and social life promote learning that goes beyond the classroom.

Contained within the 96,000-square-foot facility are a variety of services and programs designed to enhance the learning environment and strengthen the UW-Platteville community.

Computer workstations are placed throughout the Markee in a wide variety of settings.

Dining Services locations offer patrons an array of food and beverage selections to enjoy while attending events, or just relaxing in the Markee. Events include live music, comedians, leadership conferences, organizational meetings and educational speakers. Events are sponsored by the approximately 180 student organizations supported through the office space, common lounges and accessible technology in the Pioneer Involvement Center. Other services available at the Markee include the University Bookstore, Campus Card Office, and Information Center.

Cultivating enduring loyalty to the campus community, the Markee exhibits the heritage of the UW-Platteville campus. From the Alumni Lounge and Heritage Hall, community members can view the original Normal School bell, refurbished for the Markee as a commemoration of rich campus traditions. In the north area of Heritage Hall is a mural depicting historic buildings, locations and seals of campus. In the south windows of Heritage Hall is the University Seal. In the hallways adjacent to Heritage Hall, flags representing the nationalities of every student in attendance at UW-Platteville are proudly displayed to celebrate UW-Platteville’s cultural diversity. For more information, stop by the Markee or visit the Markee website.
