Currently enrolled UNT students who have paid the Rec Fee are automatic members of the Pohl Recreation Center. A current UNT ID card is required for entrance to the Rec Center.
Students who are only enrolled in online classes, classes held off-campus, study abroad classes or other classes that do not meet on a regular basis on the UNT Denton campus do not pay the Rec Fee and therefore, do not have access to the Rec Center. These students can pay the Rec Fee directly to the Rec Center in the form of a continuing student membership (for the same fee that students pay).
Students who drop all of their classes or are no longer considered a student at UNT will be inactive in the Rec Center system and will not have access to the Rec Center.
UNT faculty and staff are eligible to purchase a membership to the Pohl Recreation Center. When joining the Rec Center, faculty and staff are encouraged to join the Faculty/Staff Fitness Program by completing a registration form. As a member of the Faculty/Staff Fitness program, full-time staff members are eligible for 20 minutes of administrative leave for one hour of daily exercise as approved by their supervisor (policy 05.058).
Faculty and staff who have retired from UNT and have a valid UNT Retiree card are eligible to purchase a membership at the Rec Center. Retirees are charged a reduced rate.
Dependents of UNT students, faculty, staff and retirees ages 16-24 may also purchase memberships. Parents of dependents ages 16-17 must also be a member of the Rec Center as children ages 17 and under require the supervision of a Rec Center member.
Alumni must be a member of the University of North Texas Alumni Association to purchase a membership at the Rec Center.
