The Reily Student Recreation Center is first and foremost, a location for students to recreate, work and grow. Administered by Tulane's Department of Campus Recreation, we operate differently than a private gym in the following ways:

  • We periodically close and have altered hours of operation due to University sporting events, holiday breaks, and necessary maintenance projects that must be completed outside of the semester terms.
  • We periodically host tournaments and special events that will impact the availability of certain spaces in the facility.
  • We regularly reserve space for varsity athletics programs, club sports, and intramural sports.
  • Most positions in the building are staffed by Tulane students. We are dedicated to providing a safe and positive work environment that prepares these individuals for life after Tulane. Disrespectful behavior will not be tolerated.

Facility Access

  • For the safety and security of our members, you must have your Splash Card or Key Tag to access the facility. Individuals using a key tag must have a photo in our system or present a second form of photo identification for each entry. We will allow you one exception per semester if you can provide another form of identification. Subsequent occurrences of a forgotten Splash Card or Key Tag will require the purchase of a daily pass with membership verification. Lax security leads to an overcrowded gym and increased occurrences of theft and undesirable behavior. We take security seriously to ensure a positive experience for paying members.

Lost Splash Cards can be replaced in the Card Services office. Lost Key Tags can be replaced at the Member Services desk for $5.

Note: Member Services will no longer accept cash during any sales transactions.
