Some extra programs have additional fees associated, consult DRAW staff for details. Anyone under the age of 18 using these facilities must be accompanied by a legal guardian whose minimum age is 21 unless they are a full-time UAF student.

Student Spouse/Dependents

  • Students with an active SRC membership may add dependent family members. Dependents cannot qualify for student/staff/faculty membership on their own. If they do, they must purchase their own membership.
  • Any family member over the age of 5 is required to have their own Polar Express Card or Nanook Recreation membership card to access the facility.
