» Summer Visit

Plan a visit to UW-Stout during your summer vacation!

Once you've finalized your vacation plans, make an appointment to visit UW-Stout and take a campus tour. Conveniently located near I-94, UW-Stout is right on the way to many of your summer destinations. You'll find a quiet campus. Most of our students go home or work on internships during the summer months, so you won't find streets and sidewalks packed with students, like you see in our brochures. 

A summer college visit can help you fine tune the list of colleges you'll apply to in the fall. You can take a one hour walking tour of campus with one of our current students and a one hour session with an admissions counselors. Faculty, unfortunately, are often not available during the summer months. However, the colleges are providing someone to meet with visiting families on Mondays and Fridays. Please keep in mind that this person may not be specific to your major.

Summer campus visits are offered weekdays June 2 – August 22.

Plan a group visit to UW-Stout!

UW-Stout welcomes student groups and other educational programs to visit our campus! During your visit you’ll have opportunities to experience what life as a UW-Stout student is like. These visits are intended for groups of seven or more students from middle or high school.  

Your visit will include a presentation by an Admissions representative and a campus tour. There may also be opportunities for:

  • a student panel in which UW-Stout students answer questions about the college experience
  • lunch at the Merle Price Commons where Stout students eat
  • meetings with a faculty member from the majors students are interested in 

These additional opportunities are not always guaranteed.

We’ll accommodate as many requests as possible, however, we may not be able to honor all visit requests due to limited availability of staff and facilities.

Please allow at least three weeks to make arrangements for a group visit, so that we can provide you with the best visit possible.
