The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Campus Center Board (CCB) and Office of Student Life & Development would like to provide clarification on the opt-in UHM alumni membership for the new Warrior Recreation Center.

As part of the Fiscal Year 2014 budget process, the Campus Center Board approved a fee schedule for the Warrior Recreation Center membership that included an alumni rate. Under the approved fee schedule, UHM alumni are eligible for membership under the affiliate category.

Over the past week, our Student Recreation faculty and staff approached the implementation of the UHM alumni membership opportunity conservatively to be sure we could accommodate all current student mandatory fee payers. There are an estimated 80,000 UHM alumni who reside on the island of Oʻahu and it was clear that opening up membership to such a large group may have serious impact on student accessibility to the recreation facility, programs and services.

The Campus Center Board recently met with the Student Life and Student Recreation leadership to discuss alumni membership implementation. The CCB has decided to begin offering opt-in membership to UHM alumni who were assessed the mandatory Campus Center Operations and Recreation fee. This includes all UHM alumni who graduated from Spring 2008 to the present, as well as future alumni who were assessed the Campus Center Operations and Recreation fee. Prior to Spring 2008, there was no Recreation fee.

On behalf of the Campus Center Board and the Office of Student Life & Development, we offer our sincerest apologies for the delayed implementation regarding UHM alumni membership at the Warrior Recreation Center. All UHM alumni who were assessed the mandatory Campus Center Operations and Recreation Fee starting Spring 2008 and who are interested in purchasing membership may do so on or after May 1, 2014, at the Warrior Recreation Service Counter. The annual fee for this alumni group is $300 annually. These UHM alumni will be expected to provide documentation of their alumni status, such as a copy of transcripts or a diploma as well as proof of payment of the applicable mandatory fees.

The Campus Center Board and the Student Recreation faculty and staff from the Office of Student Life & Development will continue to assess the actual usage of the facility over the coming semester and, if possible, extend the offer of membership to UHM alumni who graduated before Spring 2008 in the future.

Thank you for your continued support of this student-driven, student-funded facility and program.

Please contact the Campus Center Board with any questions or concerns.
