UC Rec&Sport App

Download the APP for your device

Hot tips: 

  • Make sure you use your student email, or if you're not a student, the email you gave us when you joined.  
  • This will ensure your reccentre membership account and your app account are connected as fast as possible, enabling you to use the booking systems faster 
  • The magic happens every workday at 5pm, (except for weekends at the moment, we're working on that!), so if you sign up after 5pm, your account won't activate until the 5pm run the next day.

Having Problems with your App?

Do you get the following message? "Your membership does not allow you to make this booking"

  • Once you've created your account, and you've activated it using the link in the sign-up email, we still need to grant permission to areas of the app on our end.
  • We do this twice a day (very early morning, and late afternoon).
  • If you receive this message it is because you haven't been granted access to that area of the app yet. Please check back later in the day.

You may also get this message if you're trying to use an area in the app that you don't have permission to use, such as booking into the K1 Training Facility or using the Live or OnDemand group fitness services without the appropriate membership add-on.
