To create a safe and enriching environment for our members, University Recreation offers various services to enhance their experience. Including allowing members to bring guests.

Guest Pass

Students and UREC members have the privilege of sponsoring up to 2 guests each day. These guests must be 18 years or older and are required to present a valid government-issued photo ID card. To purchase a guest pass, they need to create an account with a photo and sign a waiver of liability.

Sponsored guest passes include the use of a free daily lock and towel and grant access during regular operating hours on the day of purchase. Members are responsible for checking out equipment for their guests, including the day lock and towel. When re-entering the facility, guests must be accompanied by their sponsor and present their receipt and photo ID.

Additionally, Sustaining Contributor Members of the UWM Alumni Association, as well as Faculty and Staff non-members, have the option to purchase a guest pass for themselves without needing a sponsor. In this case, a Sustaining Contributor Member of the UWM Alumni Association card or Faculty/Staff PantherCard must be presented.
