All move-in instructions for students are commu nicated to them via their UW-Stout email.

Check-In When changing rooms throughout the academic year, residents check-in to their new room by going to the front desk. Here you will get your new keys and can begin the move. Be sure to complete your new room inspection form imme diately. Once everything is out of your old room, check-out at the front desk of that hall. Whenever a resident leaves their room, the room should be left in the condition in which it was found. This means that all personal belongings are removed, furnishings returned to their origi nal locations, and room is cleaned. Room set-ups may be found on your residence hall webpage, linked on the Hall Information page of the hand book. Once this has been completed, go to the front desk to check-out. Desk staff will go with you to inspect the room. Failure to follow the process will result in an improper check-out fee, in addition to being assessed for any damages. Residents will be charged for any damages to walls, ceiling, carpet, furniture, and missing items that are found by hall staff, including student staff and custodial staff. Check-Out
