Anyone currently affiliated with Sonoma State University (Students, Faculty/Staff, Emeritus/Retirees, Alumni & Alumni Association Members, etc.) is eligible for a membership. If not affiliated with the University, potential members may be “sponsored” by a current member and allowed to purchase a membership. Please see our policies page for a more complete breakdown of membership eligibility categories.

Memberships may be purchased for a full calendar year, the duration of a semester, a 30-day period, 15-day period, or for the summer session. There are also Daily Passes, 24-Hour Passes (so you can come back the next day as long as it’s within 24-hours of purchasing the pass), and 10-Punch Passes available. For prices please check our Fees and Schedule page.

The first week of each semester, Campus Rec is open to all “Eligible Members” free of charge. The operations staff will still be checking for memberships however, and to take advantage of this offer you will still need to check in with them and sign a waiver. If you aren’t sure if you would be eligible for a membership, please check our Policies and Procedures page.

Yes, there are "guest passes" available for students (through the semester) and paid members of the Recreation Center. Each student and member is allowed 2 guest passes per semester. For students, these are utilized through their SSU student ID card. For members, the guest passes are tallied at the front desk at the time of entrance. If a member does not have any remaining Guest Passes, $9.00 daily passes or $12.00 24-hour passes are available for purchase at the front desk. Also, if you are an SSU Faculty or Staff Member, please be sure to check out our Free Faculty & Staff Fridays offers on the first Friday of every month.

Sorry! This only applies to students who graduated between December 2002 and December 2004. Those students who graduated before the opening of Campus Recreation, but paid the 2002-2003 fees will be granted a one-year free alumni membership to the Rec Center. To claim your one-year free alumni membership, alumni need to bring proof of graduation. This can include a copy of your diploma, transcripts, or a print out from People Soft, showing the year that you graduated and your degree. Alumni participants have ten years to claim their free membership, making it only redeemable until December 2014.
