Individual memberships are available for Rutgers Alumni, Alumni spouses, Employee spouses, Student spouses, Type 3/4/8 employees, PALS, SAC Parents and UMDNJ students.  All members must be at least 18 years of age.  We do not offer family memberships.

Courtesy Memberships

Courtesy memberships are also available to patrons over the age of 18 who are not affiliated with the University. Courtesy members must be sponsored by a current student, faculty, staff or Recreation member. The affiliate must accompany the courtesy member to apply for the membership.

Retired Employees

If you are a retired employee of Rutgers University, you do not need to purchase a membership. If you go to the RUConnection Card Office, you can obtain a pass that allows you access to all the Rutgers facilities.
