Summer usage fees are available for continuing students not registered for summer classes. A valid I-card is the only piece of identification allowed for admittance.
Faculty & Staff
Access to all Campus Recreation facilities is available for current UIC Faculty and Staff employees by purchasing a Recreation Membership. This membership allows access to the Student Recreation Facility, Sport & Fitness Center and the South Field Complex. Membership privileges will be put on your current Faculty/Staff I-card and you must present this card each time you visit any of the recreational facilities. Faculty/Staff have an option to purchase a daily pass for access to facilities. Only Faculty and Staff members may sponsor guests for admittance.
UIC Faculty & Staff members may pay for facility memberships through payroll deduction. Payroll deduction gives a faculty or staff member the opportunity to spread out the cost of a facility membership over the course of a year. Payroll deduction can also be added for a faculty or staff member's spouse/domestic partner or dependant.
