Life on Campus

You will find a little bit of everything here. UW-Stout has a variety of dining options, recreational, theatrical  and sporting activities and events.  Look for what interests you—but also be open to events and activities that are new to you.  UW-Stout is all about exploration!

Dining Locations

University Dining Service at UW-Stout is self-operated. This means the university owns and operates the service rather than contracting out for it. This self-operation guarantees you a most responsive staff and the best return on your dining dollar.

University Dining Service operates in three facilities: Merle Price Commons, North Point and the Memorial Student Center. The Memorial Student Center building has numerous dining locations including the Fireside Cafe and Skylight Market. There are numerous Expressway Carts located conveniently throughout many of the campus buildings for quick walk by service of coffees, sodas, sandwiches, snacks, soup and more. A quick summary of all of our Retail Dining Operations will be available soon! For more information visit our University Dining Page or our Guide to Dining Services Brochure.

The Furlong Gallery houses a permanent visual arts collection of over 500 works and serves as the principal art and design display area for the university.

The gallery is one of two teaching galleries directed by the Department of Art and Design. The Furlong also serves as a place for "gallery talks" given by the artists being shown. The gallery is open approximately 50 hours per week for public viewing by students, faculty/staff, the UW-Stout and local community.
