University of Maryland Faculty and Staff have the option to obtain a University Recreation & Wellness (RecWell) Membership through the use of payroll deduction.
Eligibility for Payroll Deduction
All regular 12-month and 9 1/2-month employees, as well as all contingent II employees who receive regular pay-checks, are eligible to enroll for a RecWell Membership using payroll deduction.
Membership Through Payroll Deduction
When you use payroll deduction to pay for a RecWell Membership, you are purchasing a continuous right to use the Eppley Recreation Center (ERC), Ritchie Coliseum, the Reckord Armory, the School of Public Health Building, and the Outdoor Aquatic Center.
Your membership lasts as long as you remain a university employee (or you decide to cancel). Once you sign up, you will never have to renew.
Additionally, you have the option to use payroll deduction to pay for memberships for your spouse and dependents, if so desired. Towel and locker services may also be acquired through payroll deduction.
Enrollment for Payroll Deduction
You can enroll for membership using payroll deduction by bringing your faculty/staff ID card to the Member Services Desk, located in the main lobby of the Eppley Recreation Center. Click here for the Member Services Desk hours.
Cost of Continuous Membership
If you are a 26-pay employee, the cost for your continuous membership is $17.11 per pay period. If you are a 22-pay employee, the cost for your continuous membership is $20.22 per pay period.
NOTE: For 22-pay employees, a small, one-time fee will also be charged at the time of enrollment to cover the cost of membership during the period in which paychecks are not issued.
