Membership FAQ

  • Refunds are not given once a membership is purchased and we do not prorate memberships if you wish to cancel. Please select the right term membership that suits you best.
  • When the University closes due to snow, the CRC typically has a delayed opening at 10 a.m. and closes at our regularly scheduled time. Important facility updates will be posted to our main website page.  You can also get these alerts sent directly to you if you follow our Twitter handle.
  • For more important information on our hours and programs, please become a fan of Campus Recreation on Facebook.


A CRC member (host) can bring up to two guests into the Campus Recreation Center each day. A $10 guest fee is required for each guest and they must present a valid picture ID showing they are 18 years or older. We will keep the host and guest(s) ID's at our Welcome Desk until they exit the CRC.

The host must accompany their guests at all times. A host takes full responsibility for his/her guest's actions and are also responsible for conveying our facility policies to their guest(s). Upon the host departing from the facility, the guest must also depart the facility. Guests can re-enter the facility with their host during the date of purchase if they bring their receipt and valid ID.


  • All CRC members (except part-time/continuing ed and MCC Student members) have access to park in the CRC Lot, East Campus Garage and the Perkins Street Lot on East Campus. Eligible Members will receive a parking hang tag to display in their rear view mirror.
  • There are 10 designated parking spots in the CRC lot that are reserved for our eligible CRC members Monday - Friday, 6 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Please Note: Purchasing a membership does not guarantee a parking spot, just the access to park in the designated lots when available. There are instances where the lots will be closed for University events or programs. To view parking lots our eligible members have access to park in, please visit the UMass Lowell Maps website.

All Members (except part-time/continuing ed, MCC student members & non-UMass Lowell college student members) interested in using Costello Pool can request additional parking access on their CRC ID for the Riverside Lot B on North Campus near the pool. If you would like this access added to your CRC ID card, simply contact us! Please refer to the a title="Facilities" href="">online pool calendar for current open pool hours.
