Additional Membership Options

The following university employees are currently eligible for membership to the LSRC:

  • 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 Pat Leonard Student Recreation Center are asked to opt in to have their ID activated. Staff can visit either the Campus Recreation office or Member Services Desk in the LSRC to complete enrollment forms. Access will be granted once an application, user agreement and informed consent form, and verification have been completed.

This access is sponsored at the university level on an annual basis. It is subject to change. It is not a state benefit guaranteed with employment.

These individuals are eligible for a membership to use the LSRC. The LSRC does not allow these individuals to purchase memberships for dependent children or other family members.

  2. Once an ID is obtained an application must be completed in the Campus Recreation office located in the LSRC. Campus Recreation Membership Policy requires the UNCW employee/retiree to be present when obtaining a membership for their spouse.
