The Student Recreation Center at Western Michigan University offers memberships to faculty, staff, students and other affiliates. The Student Recreation Center is a student-funded facility and is not open to the community. Memberships are available on a semester (fall or spring) and session (summer I or summer II) basis. Facility tours are available during all building hours by stopping at the service desk or main office.

Currently enrolled undergraduate students

Access to the SRC for currently enrolled undergraduate students is included in the semester/session tuition.

Currently Enrolled graduate students

Access to the SRC for graduate students is determined by enrollment fees paid for the semester/session. Enrollment fees are charged to any graduate student enrolled in any main campus program based on the number of credit hours that you are taking that semester. If you are not charged an enrollment fee for the semester/session, then you can activate your SRC access at the current SRC membership rate.

Unenrolled Students

Students that are not enrolled in classes for the current semester can purchase access to the facility at the current semester/session rate. Unenrolled students that have not graduate are eligible to purchase a membership up to one year after their last semester/session of enrollment.
