Membership Cards

Each CQY member is issued a membership card that must be scanned at the first floor reception desk each time the member enters the building, and given in at the Health & Fitness reception desk on the lower level. Please report lost cards to the office immediately. Showing your membership card is part of a security system designed for members' safety. Please respect this and cooperate with the staff. Those not carrying a membership card may be denied admission. Non-members enrolled in CQY programs are issued a course card as identification, which must be presented to gain admission to the building.
