Did You Know?

All currently enrolled Washington University student veterans and servicemembers, regardless of enrollment status (full-time, part-time, half-time, etc.), receive automatic access to recreation facilities, free of charge. This is particularly useful for students enrolled less than full-time who do not pay the Health and Wellness Fee.

This access only applies to the veteran and not to dependents or spouses who may be receiving VA benefits.

Contact the Office of the Registrar to ensure you are identified as a student veteran.
