Yates Field House was built for the recreational use of Georgetown University students, faculty, staff, MedStar employees, alumni and their families. Membership categories are determined by one’s primary affiliation with the university. Individuals and families not affiliated with the university may join Yates as “Friends” members.

For membership purposes, the "family" is defined as the primary member plus spouse or legal dependent (21 or younger). Additional dependents can be added for a fee (children 4 and under at no charge). Proof of family relationship is necessary for any family plan additions. Full-time students aged 22 or younger may remain on their parent’s membership. Primary membership holders must be 18 years of age or older.

Memberships at Yates require a one-year commitment, and are non-refundable and non-transferable. Payment may be made by cash, check, VISA, MasterCard, or American Express. A payroll deduction plan is available as a convenience to full time university and MedStar employees. ID cards are individually issued and are non-transferable. Faculty, staff and student members must use university-issued ID cards. Memberships canceled prematurely will result in a penalty equal to three (3) months of applicable dues at Yates.

For your own safety, you should always consult your physician before entering into a strenuous conditioning program.
