Employee Payroll Deduction

The Recreational Sports Payroll Deduction Plan is available for Memberships, Locker Rental and/or Towel Services at the Member Services Desk in the CoRec. Rather than having to pay for an annual membership, locker and/or towel service in one lump sum, Purdue employees now have the convenience of a monthly or bi-weekly deduction from their paychecks.

Sign-up or Renew anytime at the Member Services Desk in the CoRec! Enrollment available and open during any month!

Payroll deduction is offered to faculty/staff employees for memberships, locker rental and/or towel services during any month. Employees joining the Recreational Sports Center can enroll in person for payroll deduction at the Member Services.  You will be given a receipt detailing the following terms after activating your membership type, locker rental, and/or towel service.
