Email and Campus Accounts

Account Activation

Account activation creates the credentials (username and password) students use to log into campus systems such as e-mail (Office 365), Learn@UW-Stout and Access Stout.

  • Usernames are derived from last name, first initial and a four-digit random number (ex. doej1234) and are used to log into every system except e-mail (Office 365) which requires the full e-mail address to access.
  • E-mail Address - Student e-mail addresses are username+'' (ex. Faculty and staff e-mail addresses are username+''.
  • Password - A single password serves for all campus systems. Students do have the ability, should they so wish, to change their e-mail (Office 365) password from within that account; this will not change the password for any other campus systems. Forgotten passwords can be reset at our password help page.
