Q. Can I pay online or over the phone?
Unfortunately, our current membership system does not allow online membership purchases or renewals. New membership sales must be done in person so that we can verify who you are to give you the best value in a Rec Sports membership! Also, credit card information is not secure over the phone and we therefore do not allow sales over the phone for membership.

Students Enrolled In Classes - Student memberships will start on University approved days for each enrolled semester. For example, fall 2014 memberships will begin on Monday, August 18, 2014. In some cases, if you enroll for classes after August 18 or the subsequent date each semester, your membership will not show in our system until the next calendar day.

We have many membership types available to patrons outside of the Texas Tech Faculty/Staff area. These groups include State, Alumni, LISD and University Medical Center staff. For specific information on these membership types, please call us at 806-742-3351.
We also have a membership that can be added on to a current membership. Every student, faculty/staff and SALU (State, Alumni, LISD & UMC) member may sponsor (1) one person from outside of the normal membership types. These adjunct members will have full access to the facilities, but are not permitted to play intramural sports.

We do not have an area specific membership that can be used for only a single area. All memberships provide access to the all open Recreational Sports facilities.
