What is the Move-In Process?
For Fall August 26, 2023-September 3, 2023 (for students new at spring, please check your Stout email in December for more information)
UW-Stout has a weekly long move-in process where you drop off items and then return to campus for orientation.
A weeklong process allows for:
- Flexibility for your schedule (we recognize everyone has different work schedules, end of summer plans, etc and want to provide multiple options)
- Provides you time for room set up and to get any last-minute items you are missing or forgot
- Exploration of your building, Stout and Menomonie
- Reduced community congestion to help the day be low stress and laid back
- You to be settled into your space and be able to return to campus to be focused on starting the year
In early August you will be able to select a day and time during the fall drop off period, Saturday, August 26th - Sunday, September 3rd to move items in and set-up your room. Directions on scheduling a move-in time will be emailed to your Stout email addresses in late July. You can stay during the drop off time frame, however, most students leave campus and return for orientation Sunday, September 3rd between 3-5pm (for students new to Stout) or start of classes (for returning students). Meal plans are not active during fall drop off times.
You will arrive to Parking Lot 29 on the date and time you select. You will have one unloading space in front of your building for during your two-hour move-in time selected. Once unloaded or by the end of your move in time, you will move your vehicle to an approved parking lot.
