If you’re keen to look after your health and wellbeing while studying, UC Rec & Sport offer great opportunities to lift, move, play and restore.
UC RecCentre membership is covered by your student services levy* and gives you access to facilities including a gym, boxing training area, climbing wall and sport courts. Membership also includes an extensive group fitness programme with everything from yoga and pump to spin and circuit classes.
If you haven’t sorted your membership yet, you can sign up online – you’ll need to create a new RecCentre account using your student email. During your first visit to the RecCentre we’ll activate your Student ID card and take a photo of you.
Your existing 2018 membership will expire on Friday 1 March. You can renew your membership online – you’ll need to log in to your existing RecCentre Account. We’ll then activate your Student ID card when you next visit.
This is also a good time to sign up for social sport leagues, small group training courses and the 2019 Group Fitness Challenge if that interests you.
You can also register your interest in any of the huge range of sports clubs on campus.

*Most classes are at no extra cost if you are registered with the RecCentre. Some classes involve an additional charge.
Fee changes for domestic students enrolled at the UC Health Centre
While the cost of consultations at the UC Health Centre are subsidised partly by the Student Services Levy, the Ministry of Health (MoH) provides the bulk of the UC Health Centre funding.
MoH has recently changed the way it funds primary healthcare services, and the amount of funding they provide for your healthcare at the UC Health Centre now depends on whether you have a Community Services Card.
What this means for you
- If you are enrolled at the UC Health Centre and you have a Community Services Card, most of your GP consultations will continue to be free.
- If you are enrolled at the UC Health Centre and you don’t have a Community Services Card, a $15 fee will apply for every GP consultation.
Apply for a Community Services Card
If you don’t already have a Community Services Card, make sure you apply for one as soon as possible if you are eligible for one.
Visit the Work and Income website for more information about a Community Services Card and how to apply.
