UC Student First-Time Memberships

Student signing up for student membership. UC Rec Centre

You've paid for it, now let's get you started!

As a UC Student, your student levy funds a RecCentre membership for you to use to stay healthy and active while studying.

If you're new to UC, and/or haven't been a member with us before:

Step 1:   Pay your student levy (with your fees)

Step 2:   Collect your UC Student ID Card (this becomes your gym card)

Step 3:    Register for your gym membership 

  •  Click [REGISTER HERE] below and use your UC username and password to create yourself a RecCentre account. 
  •  Click [MEMBERSHIPS]. Choose either "Undergrad" or "Postgrad" membership. Click [UPDATE PRICE]. The page will refresh.
  •  Scroll down the Click [ADD TO BASKET]. Click [CHECKOUT], then Tick the box to accept our terms and conditions. 
  •  Click [CONFIRM & CONTINUE]. You now have an account and set up your membership. 

Step 4:   Download the Rec&Sport app - MyWellness account 

  • Download the Rec&Sport app (it's different to UCGo)
  • You'll need this to book classes, get programmes, book consults and access on demand and livestream

Step 5:  Show up!  And bring your vaccine pass for your first visit 

  • We are operating with vaccine passes, so we must scan and verify yours on your first visit.  After that, you won't need to do it again, as we'll make a note of it in your account

Things to know:

  • Processing takes up to 48 hours (2 days) to activate your membership onto your UC student card.
  • Our systems will be extremely busy processing thousands of memberships (literally), so we recommend signing up asap. 
  • If your card doesn't work on your first visit, it may be that the system hasn't processed yours yet OR you've missed something in Step 3 above, be sure to scroll fully 
  • Stop at our reception desk, and one of our Customer Experience Reps will assist you.  
  • Please be aware during the months of February and March, your wait could be up to 20mins.  We thank you for your patience and understanding with our staff.
