Entry policies

K-State student

Undergraduate and graduate students of K-State who pay campus privilege fees with their tuition may use the facilities at no additional charge by presenting their Wildcat ID. This card is for the holder’s personal use only. Due to safety and security issues, we will not make exceptions to this policy.

Wildcat ID's are not transferable and will be confiscated if presented by anyone other than the right owner. Confiscated cards are subject to potential misuse fees. 

Key tag members

All key tag members must have their key tag to enter Rec Services facilities. This key tag is for the holder's personal use only. Due to security issues, we will not make exceptions to this policy.

When an expired key tag is presented, one free admittance to the facility will be allowed; however, you must relinquish your key tag to the building or Natatorium staff. Arrangements will be made to have your key tag picked up in the office or the service area after a renewal occurs. 

Membership key tags are permanent. Users are reminded to retain their key tags even if membership expires to avoid paying a $5 key tag replacement fee at time of renewal. Lost or stolen membership key tags will require paying a $5 replacement fee. If your key tag is missing, check with Recreational Services to see if it has been turned in.

Note: Membership privileges will be suspended in the event of misrepresentation.
