Once inside our state-of-the-art facility, you'll be amazed by how much you can do. Whether it's playing basketball, working up a sweat in our fitness areas or taking a dip in the pool, there's plenty of fun and fitness to enjoy.

Simply stop by the front desk to begin your membership. If you're an enrolled student, your membership is included in your student fees, so you will only need to present your EagleCard. Full-time faculty and staff receive free membership as part of their benefits package. We also welcome community members and Active Alumni. Check the fees page for pricing.



The Recreation & Wellness Center has many policies in place to ensure that all members enjoy a safe and rewarding experience in our facility. All members are subject to these policies, so please make yourself aware of the following:



Please make sure you have a current EagleCard ID if you are faculty, staff or student and want to use the facility. Paying members will purchase an ID when their membership is purchased the first time. You will not be permitted to enter the facility unless you have an active MSU or Recreation & Wellness ID. You MUST use your own ID to enter the facility. If you are caught using an ID that is not your own, the ID will be confiscated and you will lose privileges to the RWC.
