Trans @ UW-Stout

We are committed to working towards a campus culture where all are accepted, empowered, and have the resources they need to succeed.

 
 
 

Health Care

UW- Stout has many on-campus options for students to choose from. There are various services provided through Student Health Services, the Counseling Center, and Clinical Services.

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) at Student Health

Student Health Services offers trans-competent and affirming providers and can work with UW-Stout students to provide hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

Mental Health Care at the Counseling Center

We understand that many in the LGBTQ+ community, particularly transgender people, experience mental illness as a result of increased stress and discrimination. UW-Stout's Counseling Center offers free mental health services for UW-Stout students by competent, affirming staff. Counseling Services is also able to write WPATH letters of readiness for gender-affirming surgeries.

Single Occupancy Restrooms

Students are welcome to use the restroom they feel the most comfortable in. Here are locations for all gender, single occupancy restrooms on North Campus and Main/South Campus if those are an option you would prefer. Descriptions of all locations will be added; contact us at qube@uwstout.edu in the meantime if you need assistance.

Housing

Inclusive Housing

University Housing is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment in all UW-Stout residence halls. Resident Advisors (RAs) are strongly encouraged to participate in Safe Space training so they can provide support to LGBTQIA+ students. What’s more, students can check a box on the Housing form to request a roommate who is LGBTQIA+ friendly. Housing professional staff are trained and competent in LGBTQIA+ issues.

As part of University Housing's commitment to providing a safe and welcoming environment, there is a listing of buildings and inclusive facilities (such as which buildings offer all-gender restrooms, all-gender living, elevators, etc) here. All students receive a questionnaire after applying for housing where they may indicate any needs or concerns they have regarding housing assignments. Housing is committed to working with students to make sure they feel safe and validated. If you have any questions regarding housing at UW-Stout, please feel free to call or text Housing at 715-232-1121 or email housing@uwstout.edu.

Out@Stout

New and continuing students have the opportunity to be part of the Out@Stout living and learning community! The Out@Stout community in North Hall is an inclusive environment centered on the queer community. All students applying for housing will receive a questionnaire where they can apply for a living and learning community (including Out@Stout) and where they can indicate any needs Housing staff should be aware of regarding room assignments. Learn more about Out@Stout.
