Retiree Benefits

Retired faculty may make use of certain benefits.

Information on Retiree Benefits is available online at


Library privileges as faculty will continue at both the Cushwa-Leighton Library and the Hesburgh Library.

Emeriti faculty are eligible for a faculty carrel on the First Mezzanine of the Library if one is available.

The priorities for use of these spaces are (1) Saint Mary’s College current faculty members with research needs for a defined period, usually a semester and/or summer; (2) Saint Mary’s College faculty members who are on sabbatical leave for the duration of their sabbatical project; (3) Emeriti faculty or retired tenured faculty members who are under contract, for the duration of their letter of appointment period; and (4) Emeriti faculty or retired tenured faculty annually renewable so long as the space is actively being used.

Carrels are currently equipped with a phone, desk, file cabinet and chair. Emeriti faculty or tenured retired faculty, who are allocated a faculty carrel in the Library are allocated a key only to the individual office space, not the building. They will use their carrel during regular library hours.


The emeritus or tenured retired faculty member may request to retain her/his college-owned computer (desktop or laptop). Depending on the age of the computer, the emeriti faculty member may be asked to buy it at a reasonable cost from the College (since the College would ordinarily repurpose younger computers to other spaces on campus). User ID, email and network access currently available to faculty will also be retained.  


Discounts at events, bookstore, and dining hall continue.


The spouses and unmarried, dependent children of retired faculty members are eligible for the same undergraduate educational benefits for which they were eligible on the date of the faculty member’s retirement, if the faculty member had at least eight (8) years of service with the College. An exception to this is that the tuition exchange programs are not available to retired faculty.


Current identification cards will be retained and updated with appropriate access.


Parking privileges will be retained.


Listing in phone directory will continue unless otherwise requested.
