Open Recreation

 Looking to play badminton, basketball, indoor soccer, or volleyball without the stress of winning and losing? Are you just interested in getting some exercise and fun in on your own time? Come out to Open Recreation!

San Jose State University students can enter and participate for FREE while non-students must purchase a pass to enter. Students must have their Tower ID Card to enter. Non-students can purchase an Open Rec pass for one drop-in or multiple drop-ins at the Sport Club Front Desk through the Fall 2018 semester.

Announcement: We will be discontinuing the sale of non-student open recreation passes at the start of the Spring 2019 semester.  We apologize for any inconvenience caused.  This will not affect any non-student passes during the remainder of the Fall 2018 semester.


Note: We share gyms with other groups on campus. Due to this, the Open Recreation schedule is subject to change on short notice. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Open Rec pass pricing for non-student participants is listed below. Non-student participants MUST buy a pass prior to attending Open Rec. Passes will NOT be for sale at the door and they must be purchased at either the Sport Club Front Desk or the Spartan Recreation office.  NOTE: Non-Student passes will no longer be sold at the beginning of the Spring 2019 semester.


We will not be offering any outside Open Recreation times in Spartan Complex.  All Open Recreation during the summer months will take place in the new SRAC facility which is open all summer long.
