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:

  • Pay your UC Student levy
  • Collect your UC Student ID Card (this becomes your gym membership card too)

Set up your student membership

Step 2:  Click [MEMBERSHIPS]. Choose either "Undergrad" or "Postgrad" membership. Click [UPDATE PRICE]. The page will refresh.

Step 4:  Click [CONFIRM & CONTINUE]. That's it! You have made an account and set up your membership. 

  • 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 steps 2-4 above.
