Valid Identification

We ask that all members please bring a valid EKU ID.  However, if a member forgets to bring a valid ID Campus Recreation will allow the member to enter the facility by using his/her EKU ID number along with a valid ID.  This will apply to all students, faculty/staff, alumni, spouse, donor, or family pass member.

If a photo is not on your EKU ID, we will take one to validate your identification for further entry.

Guest/Spectator Policy

Any member may bring a guest for the fee of $5/per day.   In order to purchase a guest pass, the guest must possess a picture ID that lists their date of birth.  Guests must be at least 14 years of age and must remain with the member during the visit in all activity areas.  A guest pass may be purchased at the Front Desk of the Fitness & Wellness Center.  All guests must follow the same rules and regulations set by university participants and the university member will be responsible for their guest’s actions.  The guest must leave when their sponsor also leaves. 

Members also have the opportunity to purchase a spectator pass for guests interested in watching various special events and programs, such as Intramural or Club Sports or Climbing competitions.  Individuals under the age of 13 are free, while anyone 14 and older will be charged the $5 guest fee.
