Webex App and Webex Meeting - Logon & Eligibility
This document explains the process for logging into the Webex app.
Individuals who are not included in the faculty, staff or traditional students categories can still access the Webex App and Webex Meeting if your professor (or another faculty/staff member) invite you to the meeting first. You will then receive an invite link that you will use to gain access to the meeting.
When signing in with your Wisconsin email address, you MUST use your primary email address - this usually takes the format NETID@wisc.edu or FIRST.LAST@wisc.edu.
If you are unsure of your primary address, please see: Office 365 - What is a primary address?
If you're prompted for a "Webex Site URL" or anything of the sort, enter "uwmadison.webex.com/uwmadison" (without the quotes).
