Join us as we host a human trafficking documentary: In Plain Sight.

UW-Stout COVID Update

COVID Edition Campus Life (Student) FAQ

Q. What types of testing are offered to on and off campus students?

  1. Residence hall students receive weekly antigen testing in the Johnson Field House. This testing is required as a condition of living on campus.  Off campus students are highly encouraged to participate in the COVID-19 surge antigen testing available in the West Gym in the Sports and Fitness Center. Both locations offer confirmatory PCR testing for symptomatic individuals and asymptomatic individuals with positive antigen tests.

Q.  As an off-campus student, how do I sign up for testing and how often may I test?

  1. You can test as often as you would like and as long as you register in advance.

Q.  Is off campus student testing mandatory?

  1. No, off campus students are not required to participate in the surge testing program. However, they are encouraged to do so for their own health and to help contribute to the health and wellness of our university and broader community.
