Member Services

Campus Recreation began a new membership structure in January 2017 due to the opening of the Falcon Center.  Please navigate to the Memberships tab for rates.

General Information:

Assumption of Risk

Participation in Campus Recreation facilities and activities is completely voluntary whether participating in or watching any event or activity sponsored by any group. Each individual participating or watching assumes the risk for any harm or injuries sustained. Neither UW-River Falls, nor Campus Recreation can assume any responsibilities for injuries incurred through participation in facilities or activities. It is strongly advised that participants use caution and be aware of potential health risks associated with exercise, and obtain a physical from a doctor before beginning an exercise program. Should an accident, injury, or related incident occur, please contact a Campus Recreation staff member immediately.

Accident/Injury Procedure

Keeping participants safe is the number one priority for Campus Recreation employees. All Campus Recreation professional staff and student staff are certified in First Aid, CPR, and AED and are trained to provide emergency care to participants if needed. In the event of an emergency, participants are required to report all accidents, incidents, or injuries to the nearest Campus Recreation employee so proper care can be provided. If an ambulance is necessary, the Campus Recreation staff will contact university police and follow the emergency procedures. Campus Recreation employees may not transport injured victims. In any injury situation, the injured person (when possible) and any witness will be asked questions for an accident report.

Day Use Lockers

Day use lockers are free! The day use lockers are located near the Karges Aux Gym. Patron must provide their own locks. Locks that are not removed by the end of the night on day use lockers will be removed, and the contents found in the locker will be placed in our Lost and Found.

Locker Rentals / Towel Service

Full and half lockers will be available to rent on a first-come-first-serve basis for all options. Full lockers can be rented for $10 recurring monthly, while half lockers can be rented for $5 recurring monthly.

A towel service is included with your locker rental, but you must exchange the towel for a clean one at the Fitness Center desk.

If not renewed before the current academic year ends, the locker will be cleared out and any contents will be placed in the Fitness Center Lost and Found for 4 weeks, before taken to the Parking Office. The locker will then be rented to the next interested or available person on the waiting list.


As part of UW-River Falls Campus Recreation and its mission to achieve the highest standards for its participants, we have developed our policies to ensure a safe, fair, and fun environment.  The following general rules apply to all facilities and activities that are associated with Campus Recreation.  Patrons who fail to comply with the rules of the Falcon Center may lose all membership privileges.
