Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Family Hours

Recreational Sports strives to provide a family friendly environment. Anyone holding an annual or semester membership can bring immediate family members (spouse/partner and children under 18) who have been declared on their membership application for no additional charge during family hours (limited to one spouse/partner and dependents). Students paying the dedicated fee can add spouse/partner and dependents under 18 to their membership by stopping by the RPAC Welcome Center.

Family members must remain with the sponsoring member at all times while using Rec Sports facilities. Families will have access to the following spaces during the days and times indicated below:
