Digital and Communication Benefits

Retiree E-Mail Account
UW-Green Bay retirees are eligible for a free e-mail account. This benefit makes it easier for retirees to receive campus communication, contact other retirees and stay connected to UW-Green Bay.

Find out more about requesting a Retiree E-mail Account.

Campus Retiree Listserv
The campus retiree listserv (uwgbretirees-L) is a great way to keep in touch. UW-Green Bay retirees and current employees with an interest in this list may subscribe by sending the single line message 'subscribe uwgbretirees-L' to

Campus WiFi Access
Retiree email accounts can be used to log onto the campus wireless network, eduroam. One advantage of using eduroam is that if a retiree visits another University that also supports eduroam (and there are hundreds that do worldwide), the retiree will be able to access the eduroam network of that University using their UWGB retiree account and password. For information on how to connect through eduroam, click here.
