UC Rec Centre – sorted your membership yet?

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.

New students
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.

Returning students
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.

UC Sport Dodgeball Competition

Enter the UC RecCentre’s one day dodgeball tournament on Friday 26 October.

This is a free event for all UC students to get a last minute study break stress release with flatmates, friends, strangers, or anyone who can throw a dodgeball.

Pick up your registration form at the Rec Centre, enter your team, and be ready to play!

RecCentre access around Kirkwood Village

You will have noticed Kirkwood Village is now closed and surrounded by temporary fencing. This might be affecting your favourite route to the RecCentre, but don’t let that be an excuse keeping you from being fit, healthy and well for the summer months.

The RecCentre can be easily accessed from the footbridge on University Drive, by the Law car park and Kirkwood Avenue (see the map below). Be careful of others around the RecCentre as some of these footpaths can be narrow. If you are riding your bike or skateboard it is recommended you walk from the footbridge into the RecCentre.

The RecCentre can no longer be accessed from the footbridge on University Drive by the UC Health Centre.
