UNH Faculty and Staff, upon joining the Rec Center, will have their UNH ID activated to gain entrance to the facility. Others will receive a recreation pass when becoming a member of the facility. To enter the Rec Center, members swipe their ID or rec pass through the card readers on the turnstiles located at the entrance. The ID will also be used at the equipment room to check out locks, towels, and sports equipment. Students may use their ID as a debit card to pay for activity classes or purchase items sold in the Rec center.
UNH ID’s or rec passes should not be used by anyone but the owner. Staff check to insure compliance with this policy. DO NOT LEND YOUR CARD TO ANYONE ELSE. It will be confiscated. Using a false ID will result in a 2-week suspension for both the user and the person owning the ID.
If a student or Rec pass holder forgets their ID, they may purchase a refundable guest pass for $10.00. A full refund may be obtained by presenting the valid ID or rec pass with the receipt for the guest pass within 2 weeks of the purchase at the front desk.
