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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
