Summer memberships can be purchased at the front desk of the Malley Center during all business hours.

Implementing a summer membership creates equality for those students that graduate early and do not receive free access when they are not enrolled for example, our winter quarter graduates walking in June. In addition, it aligns SCU with other benchmark universities that charge students for access when they are not enrolled in courses. The revenue generated through summer memberships allows Campus Recreation to support programs, services and equipment for all students during the summer and academic year.

Students are encouraged to sign up early for their Malley Center Summer Membership to avoid waiting in line when your access is stopped.
