How to Purchase a Membership

Facilities memberships, listed below, are available for purchase at the Ratner Athletics Center Front Desk during normal operating hours, including weekends.

Cash, personal check and Visa/MasterCard are accepted.

Payroll deduction is available for University of Chicago and University of Chicago Hospital employees who purchase a one-year membership. For one-year memberships paid via payroll deduction, the first installment (1/4 of the total fee) must be paid upfront at the time of membership purchase by cash, check or credit card. The remaining three installments will then be deducted from one's paycheck in three equal installments for three-consecutive pay periods.

Please note that fees for membership purchases, services, and programs -- as well as all merchandise -- are non-refundable.

For more information, contact the Facilities Office at the Ratner Athletics Center.
