University Recreation – Faculty/Staff Offerings

Did you know there are many FREE recreation offerings for UW-Green Bay faculty and staff?

The Kress Events Center includes a fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment, lap pool, group fitness studio, several gyms, locker rooms, outdoor recreation center, and more!

Understanding what is available to faculty/staff has been confusing in the past so UREC developed a Faculty/Staff Offering Packet to cover all of the details on memberships, facilities, programs, and more.

If you have any questions or would like to set up a Kress Events Center tour, please email urec@uwgb.edu or Alex Wandersee at wandersa@uwgb.edu

*The Well Wisconsin incentive program is a voluntary program available to employees, retirees and spouses enrolled in the State of Wisconsin Group Health Insurance Program, excluding Medicare Advantage participants who have incentives available through their health plan. The Well Wisconsin incentive will automatically be issued to eligible participants upon completing the applicable activities. All wellness incentives paid to participants are considered taxable income to the group health plan subscriber and are reported to their employer, who will issue a W2. In some cases, the Wisconsin Retirement System acts as the employer. Retirees, continuants and their spouses will have some taxes withheld from the incentive amount earned.
