RecSports allows access to facilities for visiting groups and limited-duration employees/volunteers who do not qualify for an OSU ID card. Mechanisms for creating access vary, depending on the requestor’s situation. Consider the following options or contact the Recreation Services Specialist to discuss the specifics of your situation.
One-day guest passes
Anyone with an OSU ID card is eligible to purchase a one-day pass to access RecSports facilities and equipment. You may also purchase a pass for one guest who is unaffiliated with the University, as long as you accompany them.
Students and members may purchase a one-day pass for up to two guests at a time, as long as the student/member accompanies them into the RecSports facilities.
Special University visitors (pass list)
Special arrangements are made for approved guests to be put on a pass list, allowing individual payment upon entrance or a tally of visits to be charged to a department index. Visits are charged at the regular, daily rate.
To request a pass list, an official representative of a University department/college must send an email to the Recreation Services Specialist including the visitors’ name(s), temporary role at the university, anticipated arrive/departure dates, form of photo identification that will be used for entry, and preferred form of payment. Please allow three business days for processing.
Limited-duration workers - volunteer or paid assignments
Individuals with a University working relationship that exceeds two weeks, but who do not otherwise qualify for an OSU ID card, may qualify for limited-duration access. Special arrangements can be made to enable the individual purchase of limited-duration access in increments of weeks or quarters.
To request limited-duration access, an official representative of a University department/college must send an email to the Recreation Services Specialist including the workers’ name(s), description of their work, and anticipated beginning and completion date of the work. Please allow three business days for processing.
