The staff at the front desk will sell the membership at the appropriate rate, take your picture for an ID card, and have you sign the necessary paperwork (liability form, relationship status form for those signing up spouses and dependents). Note: Faculty/Staff will use their SMU ID to gain access to the facility. They do not need to have a new card printed. Alumni will receive a Rec Center ID card to replace their old student ID.

  • Community Members and their Spouses: Please check in with the front desk to ensure you are in our system. If the main desk staff conclude that your information is not in our database please register at our in-house registration kiosk. Once registration is complete our main desk staff will sell the membership at the appropriate rate, take your picture for an ID card, and have you sign the necessary paperwork (liability form, relationship status form for those signing up spouses and dependents).

  • “Special” Memberships: Please bring a letter from your supervisor on official SMU letterhead detailing your employment and expiration date and turn it in to Judy Marshall, our administrative assistant, during business hours or Charlie Bryant, our membership manager, during evenings and weekends. A “Special” form will be filled out to give to the main desk, who will then sell the membership.

  • Minors: No fee, but minor's guardian must be a member and minor must remain with the responsible adult at all times while in the facility. New minors must register as a sub-member by inputting their information at our in-house registration kiosk. A minor ID card will be printed at the main desk for the minor to show to the main desk staff upon entry.  Once the minor turns 18 a dependent membership must be purchased by the responsible account holder. Dependent memberships are offered at the same rate as the corresponding spouse rate; (e.g., a dependent of an alumni will pay the same rate as an alumni spouse.)

  • Summer Memberships: Summer memberships will be extended to students who were enrolled and completed their term at SMU during the spring semester. Students must have no academic or administrative holds on their Access.SMU account. Students who will be returning in the fall semester will see no interruption in their access to the facility.
