Fall 2017 Laptop Exchange and Deploy

Plans are underway for the fall laptop event where new fall students will receive their laptops and current students with Return/Refresh Year 2017 laptops exchange for a newer laptop. Exchange/refresh, when two-year-old laptops are exchanged, will begin Thursday, August 31st.

*A limited number of exchange/refresh stations will be available September 5th as priority is given to new students. Longer wait times may result. Students who choose to exchange on September 5th, enter the student center from the 10th Ave entrance (via the ramp across from the Library and near the Terrace) and watch for signs pointing to the Skylight Lounge for check in. To ensure an efficient check-in, follow the traffic route on our exchange/refresh map

Continuing and Reentry Students

Those who have previously been assigned an eStout laptop may come during any open refresh hours, but like students refreshing are encouraged to avoid September 5th when new students will be picking up laptops in large numbers.

Refresh students can plan ahead to save time by backing up files well in advance and attending refresh on August 31st and September 1st, prior to new student deployment.

About the eStout Program

The eStout Program is the digital learning environment at UW-Stout which offers students a variety of opportunities to be successful in achieving their academic goals. The program ensures that students and faculty have a standard set of tools - both hardware and software - that meet a majority of their wireless computing needs, thus producing a wireless laptop campus environment. The digital culture at UW-Stout is emerging as a dynamic agent for changing ways we learn. The eStout Program is included in the undergraduate student tuition so that UW-Stout students are provided with the tools that they will need to be technology literate in this environment.

The eStout Program is more than just a laptop computer! Students receive a laptop computer, backpack and a variety of cords/accessories as well as software, wireless and wired connectivity on campus, a course management systems, service and support, training, network storage, e-mail, and multimedia classrooms. 

Students may want to purchase some optional accessories to compliment their UW-Stout laptop. Suggestions include an external hard drive, and/or a printer, although printing is available across campus at a minimal cost. All accessories should connect to the laptop via USB.
