As defined by the Department of Campus Recreation, for the purpose of accessing the Student Recreation Center, a dependent status exists anywhere there is a parent or legal guardian/child relationship. The member will be asked to provide evidence that this relationship exists at the time he/she completes the dependent waiver form. Member will be charged for membership for up to two dependents. After two, additional dependents will be free of charge.

Dependent's Level of Access

  • Aged up to 3: Only permitted in swimming pools with direct supervision during dependent hours. Swimming diapers are required.
  • Ages 3-15: Permitted to use the track, swimming pools, multi-purpose courts, indoor soccer court, and racquetball courts with direct parent/guardian supervision during dependent hours. In addition, dependents ages 6-15 are permitted to use the rock wall during dependent hours with parent/guardian supervision. Child must wear climbing shoes, be able to climb on their own, and parents must be present. Our climbing shoes start at Size 2. In addition, dependents ages 10-15 may attend SouthFit classes with direct parent/guardian supervision. Dependents must be able to actively participate in the classes.
  • Ages 12+: Permitted to use cardio machines with strict parental supervision.

All dependents using the Student Recreation Center must have a membership and an ID to access the facility.

*Direct supervision is defined as being in the same room no further than 20 feet apart. Parent/guardian MUST be actively participating in the same activity as the dependent, e.g. playing basketball together, playing racquetball together, swimming together, etc. This does not mean, for example, that the parent can be in a group exercise class while the dependent sits along the wall and watches.

**Indirect supervision is defined as parent/legal guardian being in the facility at the same time as the dependent; however, both are not required to be in the same area.
