UTHSC Fitness Center Membership

Effective July 1, 2014

Memberships are non-transferable.

All University of Tennessee Health Science Center students, faculty, staff and retirees have membership to the UTHSC Fitness Center. Proof of membership is a valid UTHSC issued ID card.  UTHSC affiliate memberships and community memberships (non-UTHSC affiliated) are available for purchase.  UTHSC affiliates are listed below on the Fitness Center Rates page.  Proof of UTHSC affiliate membership and community membership is a valid UTHSC Fitness Center issued ID card purchased from the fitness center.  UTHSC affiliate membership fees and community membership fees are listed below on the Fitness Center Rates section (below).

The UTHSC Fitness Center uses the “Plus One” membership model.  The “Plus One” option allows a fitness center member to add one individual, such as a spouse or roommate, over the age of 18, living in the same household as a “Plus One” member.  The membership fees for “Plus One” membership are listed below on the Fitness Center Rates section (below).

Membership Sign-up Procedures and Requirements

  1. Proof of fitness center membership must be presented to add a “Plus One” member and/or dependents.
  2. The member adding the “Plus One” or Dependent Child must be present at the time of purchase.
  3. Photo ID, proof of age and verification of common residence of the “Plus One” member are required as part of the membership application process.  Accepted forms of proof are a valid government issued license, birth certificate or passport that includes address and picture.

General Disclaimer: The Department of Campus Recreation has the right to review additional forms or documents to verify proof of residence.

  1. Issues concerning validity of “Plus One” member for membership will be determined by Campus Recreation Administration.
  2. Retirees must have a “UTHSC Retiree” ID card.  (Retiree ID card may be picked up at the Campus Police station.)
  3. “Plus One” memberships are valid as long as the sponsoring member is a fitness center member.  When the sponsoring member is no longer a fitness center member the “Plus One” membership is terminated.  If the terminated “Plus One” member then wants to purchase their own membership, they will pay the normal individual membership price.
