All UAB Employees are eligible for a one week trial of the Rec Center upon becoming a member. Once the trial period has passed, said employees are eligible to sponsor themselves in with our $10 guest pass that lasts the entire day. With this guest pass they can enter the facility throughout the day with their receipt of purchase and be a member for the day. However, when said employees sponsor themselves in, they cannot sponsor any other people in until they become a member. In other words, only members can sponsor in other guests. So come and try it out or redeem your free trial and sign up today!
Please note that all memberships are not prorated and non-refundable.
