Memberships: Join UF RecSports

Authorized Users | Membership Classifications | Refund Policies | Guest and Spectator Policies | Membership Fees 

Activity and Service fees (A&S fees) paid by students when registering for classes provide the majority of funding for the Department of Recreational Sports. Membership rates and access policies are established to protect the interests of fee paying students.

  • A membership (or guest pass) is required to access the Southwest Recreation Center and Student Recreation and Fitness Center; and to register for Group Fitness classes.
  • Currently registered students who are paying A&S fees receive a membership for the semester in which they are enrolled.​
  • Current Faculty and Staff are allowed to participate at Lake Wauburg, Broward Outdoor Recreation Complex, Aquatic Facilities and at outdoor intramural sports without purchasing a membership or guest pass.
  • For recently graduated students and students in between semesters (i.e. – enrolled for spring classes but not taking summer classes), membership categories have been created to allow those individuals the ability to purchase a membership at a rate comparable to the A&S fees they would normally pay.
  • Non-fee paying students

Details about requirements for each membership classification are provided after the fee schedule.

The recreation and fitness centers' policies were developed by the Recreational Sports Board of Directors and approved by the Vice President for Student Affairs. The Associate Director for Facility Operations has been granted the authority to make decisions concerning the interpretation of the policies and procedures.
