Membership Parameters

It is expected that all students and members will abide by all posted and known policies for the SRC’s and all recreational facilities (both indoor and out). It is a privilege to have such a membership, not a right. Thus, any violations of the Student Conduct Code or not abiding by stated policies and procedures may result in forfeiture of your membership and non-refund of all fees. All memberships are non-transferable and non-refundable. The department will give only pro-rated refunds to members based on a verified doctor’s note and discussion with the Director of Recreation Services.


With the purchase of a Community or Alumni membership, a free semester parking pass is included. When purchasing your membership, please have your license plate number (and state) information to complete your paperwork. The Department of Recreation Services is NOT RESPONSIBLE for any tickets issued for improper parking.

Parking for SRC-South is available on the Broadway Street side (look for signage indicating member parking).
