Student Recreation Center Memberships

The Student Recreation Center offers memberships to faculty, staff, students and other affiliates. We are a student-funded facility and not open to the wider 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 pay for access through their tuition. For most other student types, you can activate your membership for $90 per semester for fall and spring and $45 per session for summer I and II.
