Entry Policy

  • All members MUST bring their student/staff ID card or RecCentre membership card EVERY visit.
  • NO CARD = some delays whilst we confirm your membership (and enrolment for students) is current. This can take up to 5mins so for your own convenience, it's best that you bring your card every visit.
  • You get 2 chances per semester to forget your card and for us to look you up. After that, you'll be asked to pay $11 casual entry. We'll refund you in full on your next visit, within 7 days, when you present your membership card to us.
