We appreciate your patience throughout this process and, as always, sincerely thank you for your patronage. The Recreation Center at the East Gym opens this semester with reduced capacity and hours of operation.

As we adjust to the ongoing challenges of this new academic year, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily limit membership to students, faculty and staff with current BingU ID cards (not community cards) for the spring and summer of 2021. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to welcome you back in the future.

Students, faculty and staff can purchase a membership online. Community memberships (including affiliates and alumni) and are currently unavailable due to current COVID-19 guidelines at the University.

All currently enrolled Binghamton University students pay a recreation fee and have access to the Rec Center for open recreation activities like swimming, basketball, volleyball, tennis and disc golf. A fitness membership is required for access to the FitSpace fitness center and group fitness classes.

Note: Students must be enrolled in summer or fall classes at Binghamton University to have access to the Rec Center during summer sessions.


  • Summer Session I (June 1 – July 2): $30
  • Summer Session II (July 6 – August 13): $30
  • Binghamton college student day pass: $8
