Online Withdrawals & Cancellations

UBC Recreation is expanding its online withdrawal and cancellation beginning in Fall 2022. Customers will be able to withdraw from or cancel reservations for many programs using the online registration portal.

Course Withdrawal

UBC Recreation’s online withdrawal is applicable to the following programs:

Please note that memberships, private lessons, personal training, intramural activities, league sports, and performance team registrations (e.g. Junior Thunderbirds or Thunder) are not eligible for online withdrawals.

Online Withdrawal 15 Days or More from Program Start

Customers can use the online registration portal to receive a full credit or refund.

Withdrawing Less Than 14 Days Prior to Course Start

Within 14 days of the scheduled start date of a course, customers should not use the online withdrawal option.

Customers may request a refund (subject to an administrative fee) using the Refund Request Form.

Drop-in Activity & Reservation Cancellation

Membership-based classes (e.g. yoga, pilates, boot camps, spin, and group fitness) and drop-in activities (e.g. skating, stick & puck, SRC sports) offering advanced reservations can be cancelled online. Please note reservations for sessions at the UBC Aquatic Centre cannot be cancelled online.

Customers paying a drop-in fee or using a punch/multi-visit pass will receive a credit/refund when completing an online cancellation up to the start time of the class or activity. Customers registering in classes or activities using a membership are also asked cancel reservations for sessions they will not be attending.
