Referenda, 2021-2022

The Recreation & Athletics Department is proposing a new fee to support expanded facility access and operations. This fee would support the operations and maintenance of the following new facilities:Aquatics CenterRecreation FieldBobcat FieldOutdoor Basketball CourtsOutdoor Tennis CourtsThis fee would provide all undergraduate and graduate students with access to these facilities during open recreation hours during the fall, spring and summer terms without additional membership fees. If this fee is not approved, students will be required to purchase an additional membership on a semester-by-semester basis to access these facilities, currently estimated at $100 per semester. This fee may also be used for conducting studies on the cost and feasibility of improvements for existing and future facilities.The fee of $40 per fall and spring semester for all undergraduate and graduate students would be collected starting in the fall 2022 semester. Beginning in the fall 2023 semester, this fee may increase annually by a maximum of $10 per semester following review from the Student Fee Advisory Committee with a recommendation to the Chancellor for final approval. This fee may not exceed $150 per semester without an additional referendum. The return-to-aid portion of the fee would be 25%. The 25% ($10/semester in academic year 2022-23) return-to-aid portion of the fee would be returned to campus to fund financial aid for eligible students. Do you approve a fee of $40 per semester (fall/spring) to support maintenance and operations of new recreation facilities at UC Merced?
