By special arrangement with Baruch College, enrolled Graduate Center students have been allowed to become members of the Baruch College Athletics and Recreation Complex (ARC), and it is anticipated that this arrangement will continue. Under the current provisions, Graduate Center students need to obtain from the GC Registrar’s office a certification of enrollment to present to the ARC Facilities Director and complete paperwork at Baruch along with payment of $100 for the year. Information about the ARC facilities can be found at their website. Graduate Center students are also welcome to use the John Jay College Cardiovascular Fitness Center (899 Tenth Avenue, Suite 601) for a $275 annual fee (half-year membership is available for $137.50).
