Student Recreation and Wellness Center

Reservation Process

Facility rentals are available for a minimum of two hours and require a non-refundable deposit. Discounts may be considered for long-term rentals (more than three dates). Exclusive use of an area can be scheduled during low membership usage or after hours. Rentals prior to the facility opening or after closing will be charged an additional staffing fee per hour that is not included in the rental rate. Additional staffing costs may be incurred due to size of group and/or need for facility clean-up and maintenance.

  • Facility rental requests may be granted anytime Monday - Thursday prior to 4 p.m. during the academic year, and all day Saturday and Sunday.
  • Initial requests for reservations can be made by phone or in person at least one week in advance.
  • All rentals are for a minimum of two hours.
  • When the request is scheduled, a confirmation sheet will be sent listing the dates, times and areas that were reserved.
  • Once the confirmation has been received, the SRWC policy sheet should be signed and returned prior to gaining access to the facility.
  • Payment is expected at the time of the event unless prior arrangements have been made. Most reservations require a non-refundable deposit.
  • Individual(s) responsible for the event must present a photo ID when registering the group.
