Room and Board
The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
(amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
+ amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
+ amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

I love the campus atmosphere, being from a graduating class of 32, platteville is the perfect size. I guess one thing that the guys like, the guy to girl ratio is 2:3, keeping them happy! It's not too city like, it has the town and necessities, but it's also very country...we have the largest M to climb!
Cassandra from Oconto Falls, WI
Platteville is perfect for anyone who wants a great education in a fun place without being overwhelmed by a city. It's a small campus in a small town, so don't expect the UW - Madison experience. That being said, UW- Platteville is an excellent place to experience college and spend 4 (or more) great years.

Platteville has a great campus layout, its not too small or too big. The professors all seem very nice and willing to help you when you need it. Also the classes are perfect sizes, the most students in a class would probably be about 30, which means you wont just be a number to your professor.
