UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Campus Recreation, a unit of Penn State Student Affairs, now offers payroll deduction for Penn State faculty and staff memberships. By registering for the payroll deduction, an annual membership for campus recreation can be purchased for $19 a month. 

The payroll deduction function, which is only available for faculty and staff, gives members an easy and automated option for payment. To set up a payroll deduction, visit the IM Building during business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.

Faculty or staff members who are interested in learning more about Campus Recreation memberships are invited to a faculty/staff open house from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Jan. 4 at the IM Building. All Penn State employees are invited to visit the building for free; visitors can tour the facilities, try out the equipment and register for a membership if interested. 

In addition to faculty and staff memberships, Campus Recreation offers memberships for spouses/partners, Penn State retirees and Alumni Association members.

A Campus Recreation membership grants access to the IM Building, White Building, Natatorium, and Hepper Fitness Center for all informal recreational activities. Access to weight-training areas, cardio spaces, the indoor track at the IM Building, the pools at the Natatorium and White Building, basketball courts, a bouldering wall, racquetball courts, squash courts, table tennis areas, and over 100 drop-in group fitness classes are all included with the membership.
