The Student Recreation Center follows the university academic calendar. All memberships are based on the academic term. Fall, winter, spring, and summer are 10 academic weeks and one finals week, with additional weeks added depending on university break periods. Hours of operation are also based on the academic schedules with closures or shortened hours during finals and break periods.
