The Recreation Center is a controlled-access facility and is intended for use and enjoyment of current University of Louisiana at Lafayette students, faculty, staff, and other authorized members of the University community. Only authorized users are permitted beyond the front desk.

The Student Code of Conduct states in section 15.28 that, “In order to protect the safety and welfare of students and employees of the university, and to protect the property of the university, it is hereby declared that it shall be a violation of this code for students on any property either owned or controlled by the university not to identify themselves to a university employee by displaying their student identification card in response to a request.”

  • Appropriate University Cajun Card ID must be presented for entry to all Rec Sports facilities and activities (NO Cajun Card = NO Entry)
  • Valid Cajun Card for currently enrolled full-time undergraduate & graduate students, current faculty/staff, and graduate & continuing education students
  • If the photo, name, and CLID number are not legible on the Cajun Card, or if the Cajun Card does not scan, the card is not valid
