UC Reciprocity Program

UCSF Fitness & Recreation members can access recreation centers at other University of California campuses under the UC Reciprocity Agreement. Campuses included are: UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Merced, UC Riverside, UC Santa Cruz, UC Irvine, UCLA, UC San Diego, and UC Santa Barbara.

The UC Reciprocity program provides access to facilities only; additional fees may apply for programs and/or specialty facilities (aquatic centers, equestrian centers, etc.). UCSF Student members can access alternate UC recreational facilities at no additional charge during the academic year. They can also get the UC student rate on any additional programs or services they wish to purchase during their visit.

Non-student UCSF Fitness & Recreation Center members can obtain a Recreation Member Guest Pass from Member Services prior to visiting an alternate UC. The pass grants 7 consecutive days of access at an alternate UC recreational facility any time during the year, and local member rates on additional programs and services. If longer than 7 consecutive days of access is desired, passes and memberships can be purchased by UCSF employee members at the local campus employee rate, and by UCSF community and Alumni members at the local campus community and Alumni rate if available. Please inquire about eligibility requirements and pricing options with the specific facility you wish to attend. Please visit Member Services to obtain a pass.

UC Students Access to UCSF Fitness & Recreation Centers

Currently enrolled students at UC schools (with the exception to UC Hastings) are eligible for reciprocal access from September 1–May 31 under the UC Reciprocity Program. UC students must present their UC ID along with pre-printed proof of enrollment (class schedule) for the current quarter at their appropriate UC school. Without valid pre-printed proof, guest or membership fees apply. UC schools included under the UC Reciprocity Program Agreement are: UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Merced, UC Riverside, UC Santa Cruz, UC Irvine, UCLA, UC San Diego, and UC Santa Barbara. All UC students also have the option to purchase a Standard or Premier level membership at reduced membership rates throughout the year.

To maintain the fitness center, part of or the entire facility may be temporarily unavailable from time to time while repairs or renovations take place.  As a result of repairs, maintenance or special occasions, we may be required to restrict the use or temporarily close the facility. No reduction or suspension of membership fees or other charges will be offered. 

The Fitness & Recreation Centers at UCSF adhere to a no refund policy for all customer-cancelled registration activities, programs, sessions, lessons, and trips. Therefore:
• Credit is issued if a customer cancels seven days prior to the first day of an activity, program, session, lesson, pre-trip meeting, or trip.
•  For activities, programs, sessions, lessons, or trips costing more than $30, credit will be issued as a gift card for the amount paid, less a $30 cancellation fee.
•  For activities, programs, sessions, lessons, or trips costing $30 or less, no credit will be issued, and no cancellation fee will be charged.
• No credit is issued if a customer cancels after the deadline stipulated above.
• Refunds are issued only when the Fitness & Recreation Centers at UCSF must cancel an activity, program, session, lesson, or trip; the full amount is issued to the customer in the same form as the original payment.
•  UCSF Camps and Recreational Sports leagues also adhere to the above no refund and cancellation fee policies, but have individual cancellation deadlines specific to each camp or league.
• Credits or make-up classes will not be given for lessons missed or for lack of participation.

Returned Checks
All returned checks will be charged a $30 administrative fee.
