UMW Faculty & Staff Memberships

At this time, UMW employees have free memberships to the Fitness Center.

Each UMW employee may request one “secondary ID” cardholder through Human Resources and the EagleONE ID office. The secondary cardholder membership is the same price as a faculty/staff membership which, at this time, is free.

Faculty/Staff and their intended secondary cardholder should visit Human Resources in George Washington Hall to get the appropriate form, fill it out, and then head to the EagleONE ID office in Lee Hall office 110 between 9am-5pm Monday-Friday to obtain the secondary ID card.

Once the card is obtained, the secondary cardholder should contact Campus Rec by emailing with their name and all ID numbers present on the front of the EagleONE ID card.

A Campus Rec professional staff member will add the secondary cardholder to the Campus Rec member system and assign the membership. The secondary cardholder EagleONE ID is required to access the Fitness Center upon each visit.
