II.  Suspension/Revocation of Membership Privileges

The Department of Recreational Sports reserves the right to refuse admittance to those individuals who impede our ability to manage and operate recreational facilities.  Membership privileges may be suspended, temporarily revoked, or permanently revoked when an individual patron impedes the Recreational Sports staff's ability to manage and operate recreational facilities and/or disrupt programs and services.   Reasons for suspending/revoking membership may include, but are not limited to the following:

  • failing to adhere to Recreational Sports policies,
  • failing to follow written or verbal instructions from Recreational Sports staff/University staff,
  • interfering with other patrons' use and enjoyment of the facility, and/or
  • violating of the Student Code of Conduct. 

If the Director (or his/her designee) decides to suspend or revoke a patron's membership, the patron will be notified of the decision in a letter and will be refunded any unused portion of membership or mandatory fees already paid.  The patron may appeal this decision in writing to the Vice President of Student Affairs within 10 business days from the date of the letter.  The Vice President of Student Affairs (or his/her designee) will review the submitted materials and render a final decision whether to uphold, modify or overturn the suspension or revocation of membership privileges.
