Campus Recreation Access

Access to the facilities and programs offered by Campus Recreation may be acquired by paying the Campus Rec access fee.  Fees were established by the Student Recreation Board to support our student recreational facilities, including the Aramark Student Training and Recreation (STAR) Complex (Climbing Wall and Weight Room, Independent Blue Cross Student Recreation Center (IBC), the Pearson and McGonigle Halls (3rd Floor Rec Court area, and Pools 30 and 31), the TASB Fitness Center, and recreational opportunities at the Ambler and Health Science campuses.

Temple University Students

Effective Fall 2010, all matriculated Temple University students enrolled will be automatically assessed a portion of the Campus Rec access fee in their tuition bill as a part of the University Service Fee.  Enrolled students who have paid the Campus Rec access fee are assigned swipe access through their Temple OWLcard.  For additional information about the new fee assessment policy, please contact the Campus Recreation Main Office at 215-204-1267.

Alumni Recreation Access

Campus Recreation has made the very difficult decision to not allow alumni access to our facilities for the fall 2020 semester.  As we navigate our return to campus plans to allow the use of Campus Recreation facilities while complying with local and state guidelines it is clear that we must restrict membership to allow our current student population priority access.  Our hope is that we are able to invite all of our Alumni back as soon as possible!  For questions please email us at campusrec@temple.edu.
