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. Students under 18 years old must sign a liability release with their legal guardian before working out at the WREC.

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

Affiliated Campus Populations:

The following groups have the opportunity to purchase a WREC membership for the term. Cost is the same rate as a regularly enrolled Chico State student.

  • Adjunct Graduate Student
  • Open University and Special Session 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.

Guest Passes at the WREC

We’re glad you’re interested in bringing a guest into the WREC. Here are the basics of what you need to know:

  • To purchase a guest pass, stop at the front desk before entering through the turnstiles.
  • You must accompany your guest throughout their visit. You may not check them in and leave.
  • Guest must be 18 years of age and bring proper identification. A driver’s license works well.
  • Guest must sign a WREC liability waiver.
  • The $10 fee can be paid by debit/credit card only, NO cash.
  • The guest pass is good for the entire day. Keep your receipt if you want to leave and re-enter later in the day.
  • Members can purchase up to two guest passes per day and a total of 10 per semester.
