COVID-19 Coronavirus Planning and Preparedness

With the ever-changing COVID-19 coronavirus situation, UW-Stout continues to evaluate the situation daily.
In this Section

The university is open for business; however, all buildings remain in a generally locked status through at least June 30, 2020. Please call ahead prior to visiting campus offices or buildings to verify hours and availability. Employees and approved student employees who currently have card access to their building will continue to have card access. Only essential employees meeting current operational needs should be on campus during this time.  Other employees should continue to work remotely. Our recovery planning team is developing a plan and safety guidelines for a phased employee return to work.  

At this time, the expectation is that masks will be worn on campus, indoors or outdoors, whenever you are outside of safe social distancing practices (such as in a private office) unless you have a health condition that limits your ability to wear a mask.

We are planning to return to a “modified normal” in the fall, which means that we are planning for the return of students, faculty and staff to campus. Key campus officials are meeting on a regular basis regarding pandemic planning in order to ensure that all steps necessary to support the safety of the campus are implemented. The university will continue to monitor coronavirus developments both domestically and abroad and will notify the campus of key updates as appropriate. A final decision regarding fall operations will be announced by the UW System no later than July 15, 2020.

This website is intended to serve as a resource for the UW-Stout community and our constituents, and we urge people to monitor it regularly for updates.

Emergency Funds for Students

UW-Stout's Emergency Fund provides financial assistance to students faced with the difficult decision whether to continue on in school or not. In addition, CARES Federal Emergency Relief Grant funding is emergency aid from the federal government, available to students, to assist with specific expenses (food, housing, technology, childcare, course materials, health care, etc.) incurred as a direct result of the disruption caused by COVID-19.
