University Housing is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment in all UW-Stout residence halls. Resident Advisors (RAs) are strongly encouraged to participate in Safe Space training so they can provide support to LGBTQIA+ and Allied students. What’s more, students can check a box on the Housing form to request a roommate who is LGBTQIA+ friendly, and freshman students have the opportunity to be part of the Out @ Stout living and learning community!
University Housing has information on their website about inclusion within housing (see the "Inclusive Housing Options" section). Additionally, all students applying for housing will receive a questionnaire where they can apply for a living and learning community (including Out @ Stout) and where they can indicate any needs Housing staff should be aware of regarding room assignments. University Housing staff are trained and aware of issues impacting LGBTQIA+ students. For any questions about housing options, do not hesitate to reach out to Housing staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
