Student Membership FAQ

What happens to my Campus Rec membership during the summer?

Campus Recreation memberships are based on the university’s academic calendar; access is therefore granted based on student fees. In other words, your Campus Recreation membership is only active during quarters or semesters in which you are enrolled in classes and paying fees. If you are a continuing student not enrolled in summer sessions, you may purchase a membership to continue enjoying the ARC, Rec Pool and other Campus Recreation facilities and programs during the summer.

We have three student summer membership options to fit a variety of summer schedules and budgets. You may purchase your student summer membership by month, summer session, or the full quarter (please see membership pricing above for current rates). We do our best to keep membership fees low for students—our rates are extremely low compared to other public gym facilities in the area. In addition to ARC access, your Campus Recreation membership includes access to the Rec Pool and discounts to all other Campus Recreation programs.

If you need help paying for your student summer membership, we have a Campus Rec Fee Waiver program to supplement the cost. Read more about the Fee Waiver and apply online before signing up for your Campus Rec student summer membership.
