Get a U.S. Passport

The RSF is an official U.S. Passport Center

4/26/16 NOTICE: We are temporarily unable to issue passport photos. Alternatively, you can get an adult passport photo from Metro Publishing, one block away. They are open from 10 am to 6 pm and located at 2440 Bancroft Way.

The Recreational Sports Facility is an authorized US Government Passport Acceptance Facility. Avoid hassles and long lines at the Post Office! In addition to convenient hours, we offer all the necessary forms, expedited service, and a friendly staff. And we’re the only place in town open on the weekend! No appointment necessary!

Passport photos are available for $15.

Attention: Due to the recent closing of nearby US Post Offices, the Recreational Sports Passport Office is experiencing increased demand. This has led to longer than usual wait times, especially on Saturdays. We recommend that you plan your visit for a weekday or allow 1 to 2 hours on Saturdays.

While we will make every effort to service all customers, we reserve the right to close the line 30 minutes or more prior to closing to ensure all transactions are processed.
