1) Full-time students (12+ credits undergraduate; 8+ credits graduate) receive access privileges automatically downloaded to their Creighton ID cards during the fall and spring semesters.  During the summer, full time students still receive access priveleges, as do students living on campus (Opus, Davis, or Heider). 

2) Part-time students (under 12 horus undergraduate; under 8 hours graduate) do not automatically receive memberships.  Part-time students are eligible to purchase a membership in the fall and spring semesters at the rate of $29.00 per month. 

3) Only current Campus Recreation members (students, faculty/staff and alumni) may purchase guest passes for themselves and their guests.  All guests must be sponsored by a current Campus Recreation member. If a member sponsors a guest, then they themselves must stay in the facility with them and be responsible for them.  Guest pass cost is $8.00 for a single entrance into the facility.  Discounts are not available for purchasing multiple guest passes at a time.

4) Yes, your membership fee only pays for entry into the facility as well as towel and equipment check-out.  Other programs and services are subject to an additional cost.  Use the tabs to the left to learn more about our various programs and their prices.  You can register for additional programs in the main office during business hours (M-F; 8am - 5pm).
