If you’re a UCR student, you’re already a member! The cost of your gym membership is included in your UCR tuition, which dates back to two student referendums passed in 1990 (currently adjusted to $20 per quarter) and in 2010 ($149 per quarter). We are conveniently located on campus and offer a wide array of amenities and services.

For further information, please contact Andrea Wood at

NOTE: The Student Recreation Center referendum fee is not optional. Opt out waivers or refunds are not available. All matriculated UCR students (undergrad & graduate alike) pay the $169.00 per quarter SRC fee. This dates back to two separate referendums, voted on and passed by students in 1989 (SRC North) and in 2010 (for the SRC Expansion).

UC Recreation Reciprocity Program

Have you heard about “Reciprocity?” It’s actually a cool way to take advantage of the recreation departments at all of UC’s campuses. Your valid ID card works at gyms at UCLA, UC Irvine, UC San Diego, UC Santa Barbara, UC Berkeley, UC San Francisco, UC Davis and UC Merced. Best of all, it’s already included in your quarterly membership dues. And during the summer, if you live near another UC campus, you can join their facility by paying that campus’s summer rate. From San Francisco to San Diego, the UC Reciprocity program has you covered.

When traveling to other UC’s, faculty & staff who are members of UCR’s SRC may request a “Recreation Member Guest Pass” for use at any UC Recreation Center. Please contact Andrea Wood at for more information regarding the UC Reciprocity Program.
