Student Recreation Center Access:

The following university employees are currently eligible for membership (at no charge) to the SRC as a university-sponsored privilege:

  • Permanent faculty/staff
  • Part-time faculty/staff
  • Temporary (with valid ID and verified length of employment from supervisor)
  • Retirees

To ensure ID activation, faculty and staff who desire access to the Student Recreation Center are asked to fill out necessary paperwork to have their One Card ID activated. There are two ways to fill out paperwork, visit the Campus Recreation office in the SRC to complete enrollment forms or complete the Membership Application and User Agreement and forward to the Campus Recreation Office box #5923.

Spouse (of Faculty/Staff Member), Adjunct, Visiting Faculty Access:

  • These individuals are eligible to purchase a membership to use the SRC. The SRC does not allow these individuals to purchase memberships for dependent children or other family members.  Spouses of Faculty (Permanent, Part Time, Temp), Staff and Retirees are the only ones permitted to purchase a membership.
  • To purchase a membership a dependent ID card must be purchased from Auxiliary Services ($20). Auxiliary Services Spouse/Dependent Policy requires the UNCW employee/retiree to be present when obtaining a One Card (ID) for family members.
  • Once a One Card is obtained an application must be completed in the Campus Recreation office located in the SRC. Campus Recreation Membership Policy requires the UNCW employee/retiree to be present when obtaining a membership for their spouse.
