Miscellaneous Fees and Fee Policies

Recreation User's Fee Policy - 4C1

Faculty, staff and non-enrolled students, their immediate family members, and guests using the Cougar Village Recreation Area or other outdoor recreation facilities are required to pay a recreation user fee established by the University. The opportunity to use University recreation facilities is also extended to non-members of the University community subject to the payment of applicable fees. Revenues are used to help defray the costs of managing, operating, and maintaining the facilities. The recreation user fee is non-refundable and must be paid in the Office of Campus Recreation. An identification card will be issued by a member of the recreation staff. Payment of the user fee permits the use of the facilities from the date of issue until the end of the summer season. Payment of the user fee does not permit unrestricted use of recreation facilities. Information regarding the use of recreation facilities and the user fee may be obtained by contacting Campus Recreation.


Students, faculty, staff, and alumni who have paid the proper student fee or user fee are permitted to invite guests to use the recreational facilities subject to payment of applicable guest fees and the following provisions:

  1. Hosts are limited to two guests per day. Guest fees are payable at the respective facility.

  2. Guests are not permitted to check out rental equipment.

  3. Hosts are expected to accompany their guest(s) throughout their stay at the recreational facility.

  4. Guests must present a paid receipt when requested to do so by recreation personnel.

  5. The guest fee must be paid before guests are permitted use of the facility.

The use of the Cougar Village Recreation Area facilities shall be available to SIUE alumni, their spouses, children, and guests subject to the payment of applicable fees. Members of the SIUE Alumni Association qualify for reduced fees. Alumni fees are payable at the Campus Recreation Office. Proper identification shall be required of alumni users of recreation facilities.
