General Membership

Memberships

Student Memberships

Most students taking one or more semester hours automatically become Rec Members when they register and pay the Recreational Sports Fee. Some students do not pay the Recreational Sports Fee (i.e., students registered "in absentia", students only taking internet classes, co-op students, etc.); these students will need to purchase a membership separately.

Continuing student memberships are available to students who were registered for class the previous semester but are not enrolled for the current semester. These are most frequently utilized by students who are in Bryan/College Station for the summer but are not enrolled for classes at Texas A&M and by students who graduated the previous semester but are still living locally. Continuing student memberships are $106 for one semester or $53 for one summer session.

Non-Student Memberships

Besides students, the following individuals are eligible to purchase Rec memberships:

  • Current staff members of Texas A&M
  • Retired staff members of Texas A&M
  • Spouses of current students, staff members, or retired staff members
  • Adult dependents (age 18-25) of current students, staff members, or retired staff members
  • Dependent children (age 3-17) of current students, staff members, or retired staff members (with some restrictions)

Memberships include access to Rec Sports facilities in the Rec Center, Read Building, and G. Rollie White Annex. Some Rec Sports programs have additional charges in addition to the membership price (i.e., group exercise classes, instructional classes, climbing facility, intramural sports, locker rentals).

Membership prices are:

  • $375 annually
  • $275 for two semesters
  • $150 for one semester
  • $106 per semester for a student spouse

Payroll Deduction

Current employees are encouraged to sign up for their membership through payroll deduction. Patrons will make an initial payment at the time of purchase and the membership fee will be deducted from the member's pay check each month. This payment option does not include locker rentals.

  • $32/month for a 12-month membership
  • $32/month for a 9-month membership (expires May 31)

Staff members who are employed on a nine-month contract also have the option to purchase a 12-month membership. Nine-month employees can pay a slightly higher rate ($40/month) to have the membership effective continuously for the entire year. The higher rate will offset the fact that there are three months that no deduction will occur from their pay check.

In order to cancel payroll deduction, a "stop enrollment" form must be completed.

Dependent Memberships

Membership Fees & Cards

  1. Rec Member Dependents must register with Member Services for a Rec Dependent I.D. card. We will require a birth certificate, social security number and a $7.00 processing fee for each Rec Dependent I.D. card. A daily charge of $3.00 for children ages 3–13 and $4.00 for children ages 14–17 applies.
  2. All non-registered dependents or other children who are guests must purchase the current guest pass at $10 per day if sponsored by an adult Rec Member.
  3. Children age 2 and under may enter the Rec Center at no charge, but must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.

Unlimited Dependent Membership

The unlimited membership will allow dependents with adult supervision access to the Rec Center during hours of operation. This membership will only be sold to dependents between 14-17. The cost of this membership will be $150.00 per semester.

  • Dependent members 3-13 are allowed to purchase the unlimited membership for the summer semesters only.

Limited Dependent Membership

Fall and Spring Semester only.

The limited membership will allow access to the Rec Center only during posted facility family hours. This membership can be sold to any dependent age 3 - 13. The cost of this membership will be $100.00 per semester for the fall and spring semester. The parent/legal guardian of the dependent must be a member to purchase the limited membership.
