We’ve put together two jam-packed weeks of events, showcasing the Arts here at UC, including over 40 events, many of which are led by UC student clubs, or feature some of our most talented UC students!
Get stuck in and head to a workshop, or get your competitive streak going by entering one our competitions. Finalists will be invited to The Arts Fest Awards to end the week.
We get it – the first term of Uni is sometimes a bit of a blur. Assignments roll in, parties pop up, new friends and coffee meets become the norm. So, did you manage to make exercise a part of your routine this year? Don’t worry if you haven’t yet, all is not lost! Now is the perfect time to get over this side of campus and see all that the UCRecCentre has to offer. Hint..it’s more than just a regular gym!
First of all – it’s FREE.
Well, sort of. A portion of your student levy goes toward funding the sport and recreation activity on campus, including your gym membership. Once you’ve signed up online, your card will be activated within 48 hrs, and presto! You now have a gym membership. Read on to find out what that gets you.
What can you do at the gym for free?
LOTS! Here’s a handy rule of thumb…if you can pick it up and use it without our help, if it’s not behind a locked door, then it’s probably free – go for it. If you need a staff member to assist you, then there is probably a small charge (and we work really hard to keep those prices down down down).
Definitely free all of the time
Weights, cardio, boxing room, funzone, zenzone, womens gym and group fitness classes in the sportshall and gymnasium
Sports equipment hire (balls, racquets, shuttlecocks and nets)
The Rec & Sport app
In-app self selected exercise programmes.
Free some of the time, but not all of the time
Drop-in sport sessions – these are organised times to play team sports when you don’t have a team or someone to play with
