Policies and Procedures

As of Fall 2022, the information is not accurate or updated please visit our Fall 2022 Fitness Information page for further details. We hope to have a larger fitness class schedule for the 22-23 academic year. 

Below is information for the 22-23 academic year. 

Pass options to attend fitness classes include the fitness pass (for students) and unlimited, punch or drop-in (for non-students - including faculty, staff, spouses, or alumni members). All passes and a photo ID will be needed to attend classes starting the 2nd Monday of the academic quarter. In the summer, they are needed as of day one. There are no preview classes during the summer. The first week of the academic quarter Monday - Sunday will be a week of FREE preview classes for all. Classes will then run for nine weeks. In the summer classes run for 14 weeks. For summer 2022, there will be no fitness classes. 

We typically have a few classes to help students destress during finals week. These will be announced during week ten of each academic quarter. 

Continuing for the 22-23 academic year all students will be able to attend classes all year for free due to multiple donations supporting student mental health. Faculty and staff that are in academic classes at SCU but whose primary role is Faculty or Staff do not qualify for the free fitness pass. Guest are only eligible to attend fitness classes in the summer.

Current Student Free Fitness Pass 

Santa Clara Students now have free access to the fitness classes for the 22-23 academic year. Register for a free white fitness pass at the front desk, and use this each time you come to class. Passes and photo ID will be needed to attend classes. Faculty/Staff taking an academic class at SCU but their primary role is Faculty/Staff do not qualify for the free fitness pass. 

Non-student Unlimited Fitness Pass

The unlimited pass allows the pass holder to participate in unlimited fitness classes per day/per week for the current quarter. Unlimited passes are non-transferable and non-refundable. Campus Recreation is not responsible for lost or stolen cards. To use this pass, show the pass and a photo ID to the staff member checking in the class.

Non-student Punch Pass

The punch pass allows for participation in 9 full classes or 18 1/2 hour classes or a combination of both until the pass is out of punches. Participants may purchase more than one punch pass per quarter. Punch passes are non-transferable and non-refundable. Campus Recreation is not responsible for lost or stolen passes. To use this pass, show the pass and a photo ID to the staff member checking in the class.

Non-student Drop-In Pass

Participants that want to attend only one class can purchase a drop-in pass. Participants will purchase the drop in on the day they would like to attend a class & show their receipt to the Campus Recreation Staff checking in the classes.

During all business hours you will be able to purchase or pick up your fitness class pass at the Malley Center Front Desk. We accept cash, check, Visa or MasterCard for payment. 

Passes will become available for purchase during the first week of the quarter, so it is highly recommended to start buying & picking up the first week to avoid long lines when passes are needed week two.
