UW-Stout is no architectural gem, but the facilities are more than adequate. The Memorial Student Center and the Health and Fitness Center offer plenty of services and opportunities for students to study, hang out, stay fit, and have fun. The Memorial Student Center offers plenty of eating outlets, free meeting rooms for student organizations to use, and even a bowling alley! The Health and Fitness Center offers a relatively new weight and cardio facility, two rock-climbing walls, an indoor swimming pool, and plenty of indoor and outdoor space for informal recreation.
In between classes, there are plenty of places to chill. Residence hall lounges and the Memorial Student Center offer places to watch TV, chat with friends, or take a nap. In the spring and fall, many students find themselves outside chilling at the picnic tables or lounging in the grass like it's the beach. Aside from recreation facilities, the academic facilities are top-notch. Classrooms are high-tech, and the number of laboratories is off the charts. Everything is close together on campus, which makes finding buildings and classes easy.
