Membership Information

All current regularly enrolled Chico State students have access to the WREC and its programs. There is no additional fee for a standard membership*. Fall enrollment includes intersession access and spring enrollment includes summer access.

*Some specialty programs, such as Personal Training charge an extra fee.

At this time, we are not currently offering WREC membership to staff or faculty.

During typical operations, 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.)

  • Fall semester (includes the winter break)
  • Spring semester (includes the summer)

Payment Options:

  • Pay in full at time of purchase
  • Five monthly payments of $43 each from a debit/credit card

To register and purchase a membership, visit the front desk at the WREC. Please bring your employee photo ID.

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)
  • Adjunct Graduate Student
  • Open University students taking a minimum of six units

To register and purchase a membership, visit the front desk at the WREC. Bring your Wildcat Card ID.

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.
