Fall 2023 Move-In Week

What to expect, FAQs and packing advice
May 23, 2023

UW-Stout has a weeklong move-in process, when your student may drop off items before returning to campus for orientation.

This fall’s move-in week is from Saturday, Aug. 26, to Sunday, Sept. 3, allowing for flexibility around you and your student’s busy summer schedule.

The weeklong process helps to reduce community congestion so that your day may be low stress and laid back. Although you won't have university staff assistance during move-in, our process allows you and your student to have time for room set up and to get any last-minute items and explore their building, campus and Menomonie.

Your student can settle into their space ahead of time and be focused to start the year.

  • In early August, your student will be able to select a day and time during move-in week to set up their room. Directions on scheduling a move-in time will be emailed to their UW-Stout email address in late July. 
  • Your student may stay during the week. However, most students will leave campus and return for fall orientation. Students should be sure to return to campus between 3 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 3, for the orientation experience. Meal plans are not active during move-in week, however, some food service will be available.

Meet at Parking Lot 29 on the date and time selected. Your student will have one unloading space in front of their building during their two-hour move-in time. Once unloaded or by the end of your move-in time, you will move your vehicle to an approved parking lot.

If your student will be moving to campus in the spring semester, remind them to check their UW-Stout email in December for more information.
