The UAS Recreation Center is a joint-use facility, shared with the Alaska Army National Guard. This is a unique partnership, and the only join-use facility in the nation shared between a university and the Department of Defense.

Membership to the REC is available to the Alaska Army National Guard (AANG), UAS students, faculty, staff and members of the Alumni Association. Visitors are welcome to visit the facility and are often invited for community events, however membership is only available for the groups listed above.

The UAS Recreation Center or REC is primarily student funded through the Juneau consolidated fee paid by students during class registration and the Alaska Army National Guard. These two groups automatically receive membership.  Additionally, UAS faculty, staff, and eligible members of the Alumni Association may purchase memberships at the Recreation Center.  Membership fees contribute to the many programming and recreational opportunities available at the Recreation Center.

Select the appropriate tab above to view all membership options for each group.

It's proven that physically engaged students are successful students. Now is the time to start life-long healthy habits of exercise and wellness, in whatever form that might be. We offer several "forms" to choose from, whether it's group exercise programs, intramurals, a walk around our indoor running track or climbing in the rock gym. If the indoors is not your thing, check out our growing list of Outdoor Recreation Center rentals! See our facility features and decide what works best for you!
