Facility Access Reservation Information

For the foreseeable future, all patrons must wear a mask for their entire visit to the facility. This includes during your workout. To uphold new social distancing standards, the Rec Center will only grant access to a certain number of people at a time. Members can reserve one workout per day, starting five calendar days in advance, using our internal reservation system. If you need assistance logging in, please call 713-348-4058 or email us ricerec@rice.edu.

Time slots will be reserved on a first come, first served basis. Individuals may only make a reservation with a current Rec Center membership. If you are an active Rice Staff/Faculty Member or graduate student without a membership, you must purchase a membership before attempting to reserve a spot here.
No guests are allowed at this time.

Beginning Tuesday, November 2, Rec Center members will be able to sign up as early as 2 days in advance and up to one hour before a time slot. Members will also be able to cancel reservations up to 3 hours before their scheduled time slot.
