Markee Pioneer Student Center
Opened in April 2002, and dedicated to former Chancellor David J. Markee and his wife, Lou Ann, in 2011, the Markee Pioneer Student Center is unique to the UW System having been built to meet the combined need for a technology center and a student center. The Markee features a wide variety of services, programs, and conveniences for the campus community including; the Pioneer Haus pub, Pioneer Crossing food court, and the Pioneer Perk coffee and snack shop. The Markee hosts events ranging from national touring acts to educational and recreational conferences to student organizations and university departments meetings. The University Bookstore, Pioneer Involvement Center, Pioneer Passport office, Office of Student Affairs, Information Center, and Student Centers Administration are also conveniently located at the Markee, as is the Bears Den computer lab, and a mixture of formal and informal meeting spaces and lounges. An anchor of community life on the campus, the Markee is home to numerous artifacts of the university, such as the Platteville Normal School bell located at the south entrance and the Heritage Hall Mural, depicting historic buildings, seals, and the "M" mound of the university.
