Welcome members and prospective members! The following guidelines were established to assist you with membership questions that arise. Please contact our office directly at (208) 426-5641 with any further questions that you have.

Membership Forms

Currently, our membership forms are not online. Our goal it to provide patrons with an experience that allows you to directly connect with one of our staff. Thus, you may email  to receive an electronic form. This allows us to answer any questions and provide further information.

Adding to an existing membership

Adding spouse/partner/dependents to a membership – Family members can be added any time during your membership. Depending on your current payment method, please email  to receive an electronic form.

Membership Cancellation or Termination

Should you want to end your membership before that time, email  to receive an electronic form, fill out the payroll deduct stop form and campus mail it to Campus Recreation at Mail Stop 1711 or email it back.

Electronic Fund Transfer or EFT (automatic drafts from your checking or savings account) cancellations require a full 30 day written cancellation notice. If you wish to cancel your membership and pay via the EFT method, please email  to receive an electronic form,  fill out the EFT stop form and email it back or mail it to Campus Recreation, attn: membership, 1910 University Drive, Boise, ID 83725-1711.

Please note that all EFT memberships require an initial six-month payment period. Membership stop forms received before the end of the contracted six month period will be charged the balance of the remainder of the contract.

Membership End Dates

Semester/Term memberships end the Sunday before the start of a new semester or term. There are three semester or term periods throughout the year: fall, spring, and summer.

Annual memberships end one calendar year from the date purchased. Annual memberships can only be canceled if the member is relocating 50+ miles from Boise, and are subject to a $50 termination fee

Students not paying the Student Activity Fee

The Student Recreation Center is funded through a combination of student fees and other membership revenue.  Full-time students (12+ credits) paying into semester activity fees gain access to the Rec without paying any additional fees for membership.  Part-time students paying into semester activity fees are eligible to purchase a part-time student membership.

Any student that is of full time or part time status and does not pay into the activity fees (i.e., on a “fee waiver”) can gain access to the Rec by purchasing a membership that correlates best with the membership category to which they belong.  For example, a faculty/staff member that is taking classes on a fee waiver is eligible to purchase a Boise State Community Membership at that rate.  Seniors, and others, on fee waivers, may fall into either the Boise State Community or Friends of Boise State category, depending on their affiliation to the university.

Non-students or part-time students on a fee waiver must have an affiliation to Boise State to be eligible for membership. Categories for affiliation are as follows:

Boise State Community – this category includes faculty, staff, affiliates and those recognized by the University with emeritus status.

Friends of Boise State – this category includes Current members of the Alumni Association, President’s Circle and Varsity B members.

Non-fee paying students may purchase a “student other” membership.


Memberships are non-refundable and non-transferable. Membership may be placed on a hold due to illness or injury on a case-by-case basis.


Faculty and staff – use convenient cross parking options any weekday after 4 pm and all days on the weekend and holidays to park in any commuter surface lot.  The Norco lot, located directly behind the Recreation Center is the largest cross parking lot. Street parking is also available throughout the day on city streets surrounding the facility.

Off street parking is available on several city streets surrounding the Student Recreation Center – early morning and in the evening are the best time to find free street parking.
