Campus Recreation is authorized to deny SFC entry without possession of valid identification noted above.

Members who forget their ID cards will receive a one-time exemption to enter the SFC per semester. If an ID card is forgotten again during the same semester, the member has the option of paying $10 for a guest pass, provided they have alternate picture identification available for verification.

If a KNR student forgets an ID card they must go to the Campus Recreation Suite (Room 103) for approval to enter the SFC. This one-time exception may result in late arrival to class.

Misuse of ID or Membership Card

ID cards and membership cards are property of the University and misuse of ID’s to gain facility access is considered fraud. Misused ID Cards will be confiscated and membership privileges may be revoked.
