Wed, 01/31/2018

LAWRENCE — In order to improve the customer experience, KU Recreation Services switched to a new point-of-sale/access system effective Jan. 30. There are several upgrades and changes with this new system. Here are a few that immediately affect participants:

  • Fingerprints (biometrics) will no longer be used.
  • Students will need to either bring their KU ID to swipe, or they can enter their KU ID number on the keypad provided.
  • Faculty and staff will need to bring their KU ID to swipe.
  • Nonstudent members who do not have a KUID, such as spouses, domestic partners and alumni, will need to obtain an Ambler Student Recreation Fitness Center card (“ASRFC Card”) at the Administrative Office, Room 103.
  • KU Fit Passes will now be on your KU ID. No additional physical cards are needed.
  • Rental equipment from Outdoor Pursuits will be attached to your KU ID.
