Full and Part-time Fee Paying Students

Students currently registered at VCU have full access to Rec Sports facilities and programs at no additional cost. This includes students from both the MCV Campus and Monroe Park Campus, full-time, part-time, graduate, undergraduate, and special students. Student membership in Rec Sports is included in the university fee.


Non-Fee Paying Students

Currently enrolled, non-fee paying students may join on a semester basis. Students who are not registered in summer sessions (yet were enrolled in the previous spring semester) retain their membership until the beginning of the fall semester. Non-fee paying students may purchase a membership per semester/summer at the rates listed above.


Faculty and Staff

Currently employed faculty and staff of VCU and VCU Health System are eligible to purchase a Recreational Sports membership at the Faculty/Staff rate.
Eligible employees include VCU and VCU Health System full-time and part-time, faculty, A & P, classified and hourly staff, house staff, adjunct, emeritus, visiting and retired faculty, 
employees of Children's Hospital, Dental Faculty Practice, and selected full-time contracted employees

  • One Month Trial Membership: Faculty and Staff who have never had a Rec Sports membership are eligible for a one-month trial membership. 
  • Daily Self Sponsorship: Faculty and Staff may self-sponsor a visit to our facilities during open hours with valid VCU Card. The fee is $10 per visit.

VCU Alumni Members

VCU Graduates who are also members of VCU Alumni can purchase a Recreational Sports membership at a significant discount. 


Additional Adults

Recreational Sports members can sponsor one additional person over the age of 18 from their household as an Additional Adult member for an additional fee. Qualifying adults include a roommate with proof of residency or one adult family member in the same household (spouse, partner) over the age of 18. Members may also sponsor unlimited dependent adults between the age of 18 and 26 (such as college age children) in addition to their one Additional Adult membership based just upon residency.

Sponsors will be required to show either:

  • Proof of residency (includes, but is not limited to utility bills, credit card statements, checking account statements, checks, etc), or
  • Proof of dependency: The Affordable Care Act requires plans and issuers that offer dependent child coverage to make the coverage available until the adult child reaches the age of 26. Acceptable documentation includes, but is not limited to birth certificates, adoption certificates, health care insurance information, or tax returns.

The sponsoring member can pay monthly through automatic recurring credit card charges or annual lump sum payments. With a purchase of a membership, a key fob will be issued for members to gain access to the gym facilities. For additional information, please contact the membership office. 


VCU Affiliates

Affiliates are contracted employees of VCU who regularly work on campus. Affiliates must present a valid VCU Affiliate ID.


Community 

Any individual who is not affiliated with the University or the VCU Health System may join as a Community member.
