Fitness Centres Memberships Notice

Last updated November 24, 2020 10:47 am

As of October 28, UBC Recreation will resume the sale of Student Fitness Centre memberships. There are 75 Student memberships available on a first-come first-serve basis. Once capacity is reached, they will no longer be available. All other memberships that include fitness centre access will remain temporarily suspended due to COVID-19 related capacity limits. Single session drop-in reservations will also be unavailable during this time. This pause ensures all persons who have already purchased a membership will have access to the fitness centres. UBC Recreation will continue to monitor the use of the fitness centres and re-assess the availability of fitness centre memberships in the coming weeks.

Individuals with an expiring membership will be provided an opportunity to manually renew their membership by emailing

Please note that due to COVID-19 precautions, new restrictions on class sizes and the maximum capacities at fitness centres are in place:

  • 3000 available fitness workout spots per week
  • 500 available fitness class spots per week

To ensure availability to persons with fitness memberships, UBC Recreation may limit or suspend future sales of passes.
