Part of a Greater Community

At UW-Stout, we're proud to be woven into the small-town community of Menomonie, Wisconsin. We love this vibrant place, nestled among picturesque rolling hills with a thriving downtown scene. You'll feel at home with local shops and retailers within walking distance, and the nearby cities of Minneapolis-St. Paul and Eau Claire are under an hour's drive away.
