Recent UC Santa Cruz retirees:

The UC Santa Cruz Benefits Office is honored to be tasked with sending retirement packages and gifts to our new retirees. To ensure that items are sent to the correct address, please confirm that your contact information is up to date. Please note, that this process may take some time as the official retirement election report is only released three times a year from the Office of the President.

Current retirees can update their contact information anytime using UCRAYS located here. For those planning to retire soon, please update your contact information through the UC Path portal.


Campus Parking

Contact Transportation and Parking Services (TAPS) for information regarding free parking or bus pass privileges available to UC Santa Cruz retirees or visit their website. Please note that when a retiree returns to a recalled appointment they are then considered an active employee and therefore may not use a retiree parking permit during that time. Misuse of a retiree parking permit during a recalled appointment will result in charges for each month of misuse.



UC Santa Cruz retirees with a Retiree ID card are extended courtesy borrowing privileges through the campus library


Recreation and Athletics

Contact the Recreation and Athletics Department (formerly OPERS) for information on memberships for UCSC retirees and emeriti.


Campus Learning & Development

UC Santa Cruz retirees may sign up for most courses offered through the Learning and Development Office, with the exception of manager training that is specific to career track employees. Retirees with a campus email account can sign up for classes directly on the Learning & Development site. If you are interested in a class and do not have a campus email account, please contact the Retiree & Emeriti Center two weeks in advance, and we can reserve a spot in the class on your behalf.

If minimum class size is not met, classes will be canceled five days prior.




*All benefits are extended as a courtesy. Availability of these perks and services may change at any time.
