Anyone currently affiliated with Sonoma State University (Students, Faculty/Staff, Emeritus/Retirees, Alumni & Alumni Association Members, etc.) is eligible for 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 and 10-Punch Passes available. For prices please check our Fees and Schedule page. Student will recieve membership free with tuition during the fall, winter and spring semesters.

The first week of each semester, Campus Rec is open to all “eligible members” free of charge. However the operations staff will still be checking for memberships, thus, 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.
