Lifetime Wellness Begins Here

All campus Affiliates (Faculty, Staff, and Emeritus) are eligible for membership at The WELL. We have several membership options to fit your needs. Affiliate Membership includes access to free group fitness classes, the Long Pool, climbing, locker rooms with showers, and Intramural Sports (additional fee per league/tournament). Affiliates are also eligible to bring guests. The first guest each semester is free. Then, guests are $10 per day or $15 for the weekend. Guests must be over 18 with a photo ID. Affiliate members are eligible to sponsor a non-affiliated who resides with them including spouses, children, and roommates over the age of 18. We currently do not offer WELL memberships to non-affiliated community members. All membership transactions occur at the WELL Enagagement Center or Front Desk!
