Menomonie, Stout & Hotel Information

Now is the time to book the hotel room(s)! There is a section of the Hotel blocked off for Conference use. The passphrase to verify that you are apart of the conference is "WI RA Conference". With that, the price should come out to be $70 per room per night with a tax exemption certificate. Hotel block available through January 20th 2013.

  • The pool will be available to swim in.
  • The banquet room on the first floor will be useable in the afternoon. There will be some entertainment/food/games at night in this room.
  • If you would like to work out, you can get a pass from the font desk to go to Any-Time Fitness.


Our intention is to have Conference Volunteers visible when you arrive to campus and assist you with parking.

Parking is free on campus over the weekends except in limited term parking meters and handicap spaces. Street meters and parking lot meters are free. Please read parking signs for any restrictions.

Suggested Parking for the Conference: Street metered parking on 3rd Street (free- no need to plug meter), Millennial metered parking (Lot 14 off of 10th Ave. across from North Hall residence hall) or Lot 29 (Lot off of 13th Ave across from Applied Arts Academic Building).

Sustainability is something that UW-Stout is trying hard to build into our campus culture. At the beginning of the conference you will receive a water bottle that is intended for you to use and re-use during the entire weekend! On campus many drinking fountain/water fountain/bubblers have water bottle fill stations.

On campus you will mainly find the below 3 choices for disposing items.

Conference Volunteers should also be able to help you make the best disposal choice too if you ask them.

Dining Services uses Compostable materials wherever they can and participates in UW-Stout’s Sustainability goals.

University of Wisconsin-Stout has University Police who are State-certified police that patrol campus 24/7.
