*Some specialty programs, such as Personal Training and PT Group Classes charge an extra fee.

All Chico State faculty and staff, current and retired, have the opportunity to purchase a membership to the facility. Current cost is $215 per semester. (Prorating of the price begins approximately six weeks into the semester.)

Affiliated Campus Populations:
The following groups have the opportunity to purchase a WREC membership. Cost is the same rate as a regularly enrolled Chico State student.

  • ALCI (American Language Culture Institute)

Community/Butte College:
No community members, including Chico State alumni, or Butte College students are eligible to purchase a membership. We know this is disappointing to some, but we are strictly a campus recreation center, catering to Chico State’s large student population.
