If you have an auto renew membership that is post contract, there is no fee for cancellation. A final month’s payment will be collected as scheduled if within 14 days of your billing date.

Members are allowed to make two hold requests per year in monthly increments for up to 90 days, a $ 10 monthly fee will be charged in full when the request is processed. MIT Recreation does not prorate membership and hold fees, and there are no refunds for early reactivation requests. Holds will go into effect on your next billing date (1st or 15th of the month).
Holds for medical, maternity/paternity, travel, military reasons, or holds longer than 90 days require supporting documentation, e.g., doctor’s note, military orders, rental agreement. The membership hold fee may be waived with proper supporting documentation. MIT Recreation reserves the right to refuse any application for a hold at any time.
Membership holds are only possible if your membership dues are paid up to date. All requests must be made through our MEMBERSHIP HOLD FORM at least seven (7) days before the commencement of the hold period and cannot be made retroactively. Verbal (i.e. in-person or over the phone) requests will not be accepted.
If applicable, please send supporting documentation to email@example.com with your full name and “Hold Request Supporting Documentation” as its subject.
