UCalgary Active Living

Our fitness facilities remain closed to the public until further notice. In the fall, students that are physically attending classes on campus can access the Fitness Centre by booking a time. We will continue to keep you updated on our re-opening plans. 


We are leading the way to healthy, active living

Active Living is part of the Faculty of Kinesiology at the University of Calgary. As one of the most diverse recreation providers based on a North American campus, Active Living combines UCalgary campus recreation, health and wellness programs, youth and community programming.

We operate several recreation facilities on campus: Fitness Centre, Aquatic Centre, Gymnastics Centre, Racquet Centre, and the climbing and bouldering walls at the Outdoor Centre. We strive to promote lifelong active living for all.
