What’s Happening in September at UBC Rec?

It’s September and that can only mean one thing… Back-to-School season has arrived. Aside from the academic grind, it’s important to create a balanced social calendar – and we’re here to help!

Here’s a breakdown of all the events coming your way this September!

Free Week

September 11 – 17

Free Week offers UBC students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to try out a variety of fitness programs and activities. From Ballet to Zumba to TNT Boot Camp, there’s something for everyone to try! No experience is required, and all abilities are welcome.

Women (Trans Welcome) & 2STNB Fitness Hours

Starting September 11

These programs are held at specific times throughout the week. They offer access to private studio time, equipment, and supervision of staff who self-identify as women or 2STNB.

Intramural Recess

Join us for a trip down memory lane, where you get to revisit all your favorite childhood games.  Play some Jenga, do arts & crafts, and win prizes! Feel free to ask us any of your questions regarding UBC Recreation and its many programs. We will be set up on Main Mall from 11:00 – 3:00 PM.
