Face covering/mask policy (Updated 1/26)

Masks are required in the Student Recreation Center at all times for all users regardless of vaccination status. The COVID committee and WMU leadership assessed campus this week and decided to keep the policy in place. They will reassess around February 8 to determine the feasibility of returning to masks being optional for fully vaccinated users.

We highly recommend that you upload your vaccination information to your Sindecuse Health Center portal if you were vaccinated somewhere other than Sindecuse Health Center. Need help uploading your vaccine verification? Check out this YouTube video for help! For more information, visit WMU's COVID Policy page.

WMU Badging Policy

WMU COVID-19 Badging Policy Enforcement

The SRC utilizes the WMU COVID-19 badging system for granting access to the SRC. All WMU faculty, staff, and students must present their badge for that day at the turnstiles with their Bronco Card. Your badge must display your name and today's date.

  • Red, Purple or Orange COVID-19 Badge

    If your COVID-19 badge is any color other than green, you may not access the SRC that day. The SRC cannot change badge status. Badges are changed by the University for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to, missed testing the previous week, quarantine, or isolation.

    What does my badge color mean?

How to determine if you have SRC access

Access to the SRC is included in tuition for all currently enrolled undergraduate students. SRC access for graduate students is determined by enrollment fees paid for the semester/session. If you were not charged the enrollment fee (graduate students), then you can activate your SRC membership for $90 for the semester. That process can be completed by coming to our main office Monday through Friday from  9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

For questions please call (269) 387-3115.
