Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Attention Rec Sports members using an Ohio State Wexner Medical Center ID as your membership card

Ohio State Wexner Medical Center IDs cannot be accepted as membership card by our new member access system. If you currently use one of these cards as your Rec Sports membership card you will need to secure a BuckID card by Monday, May 8. 

To facilitate this process the BuckID office will be at the Adventure Recreation Center (ARC) on April 27 from 8:30-10:30 a.m. and at the RPAC on April 28 from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.  You can have your picture taken and signature captured during these times. You will receive your new BuckID on site. There is no cost for a new card during these two sessions, even if you have lost your card. You must bring a current driver’s license or passport to with you to receive your new card.

If you are not able to attend one of the times above to secure a new card you can visit the BuckID Office at the Ohio Union (third floor) Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. If you have never had a BuckID or have one that needs to be replaced there will be no charge. If you have lost your card and come to the BuckID office you will be assessed a $20 replacement fee. A driver’s license or passport will be needed to receive a new card at this location as well.

Please contact us at if you have any questions about this change. In order to have uninterrupted access to the facilities, please secure a BuckID by Monday, May 8.
