Virtual Backgrounds

Welcome to the Badger Family!

As a Badger grad, you know that one of the best parts of UW alumnihood is sharing (read: bragging about) your Badger roots far and wide. Now that “far and wide” is confined to the digital sphere, we want to help you deck your tech with full-on Badger Pride. From phone wallpapers to Facebook cover photos, we’ve got you covered.

The more the merrier! Don’t keep the fun all to yourself — help us spread the word by sharing this page with your social network. 

Choose your favorite photo below to download video-call backgrounds, social media cover photos, and computer and phone wallpapers!

  1. Download your favorite background and save it to your computer, tablet, or phone.
  2. Add it to your video-conferencing platform of choice as a virtual background before your next call. 
  3. Show it off and make everyone else jealous!

Platform-Specific Instructions

*Not into video conferencing? You can also display a background on your computer or TV and take a selfie in front of it. Or, go “old school” — print out a background and snap a pic of you holding it! Just be sure to share your photos with us online with #BadgerAtHome and #UWGrad to help the Class of 2020 feel the Badger love.
