If you are already a GB Alert subscriber that spends time at other campuses, you may sign-up for additional lists to receive emergency notification customized to you.

Marinette, Manitowoc and Sheboygan Campus staff, faculty and students, follow sign-up instructions. You will sign in with your UW-Green Bay single sign-on credentials. You must indicate at least one list.

Green Bay campus staff, faculty and students, you may edit or view your GB Alert account by logging in.
