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.
