Membership Adjustments & Refunds

Due to the unexpected closure of our facilities, Campus Recreation memberships will be adjusted to compensate members for lost time. Members taking advantage of ongoing monthly bank debit can expect a hold on all monthly charges until facilities are reopened. Members expiring in March or April will be contacted to receive a prorated refund for days lost due to the closure. Memberships expiring after April will receive all days lost due to the closure added to the end of their current membership. For questions, please email CampusRec-Memberships@ohio.edu.

Ping Recreation Center during operational hours, call the Member Services desk (740) 593-9901, or go online to RecShop (available for OHIO students, faculty/staff and returning Campus Recreation members).

Teen Memberships Coming Soon!

Beginning June 1, Campus Recreation at Ohio University will offer memberships for teens at the Aquatic Center, Charles J. Ping Recreation Center, and the Golf and Tennis Center. This membership option allows teens, ages 14-17 (11-17 at the Aquatic Center), to participate independently.*

Interested in participating in Campus Recreation as a family? Take advantage of our dependent child membership and add your child to your membership at the same facility for a reduced rate. 

*A parent/guardian must be present when purchasing a teen membership to complete an assumption of risk and code of conduct.

Freestyle ice time is for private one-on-one lessons. Though it is open to the public, it is intended for the use of coaching students who have finished Learn To Skate training program. It is more structured/programmed than public recreational skates. Freestyle sessions allow skaters extra practice time to fine-tune their skills. Skaters can work independently on various skills or receive a private lesson.
