FAQ - updated July 12, 2021

Q: Will Summer Camps take place this year?

We are excited that Summer Camps are a go this year. After careful consideration, and conversations with Alberta Health Services, we will be running youth camps in both July and August across a variety of programs. Registration is open!


Q: What other programs will run this spring/summer?

We will be offering in-person personal training and outdoor fitness classes. Additionally, we will continue to offer virtual fitness classes (Group Fitness, Trym Gym, Joint Effort and GLA:D) throughout the spring and summer months. Please see here.


Q: When will Active Living open?

Active Living will be reopening all programs and facilities for students, staff, faculty and public starting in the fall 2021. Stay tuned for more information on the website in coming weeks.  


Q: Why are the facilities (i.e. Fitness Centre) not reopening sooner?

Due to the pandemic and closure of the facilities (including the Fitness Centre) early 2020, student campus rec fees which support Active Living were not assessed. With students returning this fall, the campus rec fee will once again be reinstated and our facilities will be able to reopen. Stay tuned for more information on the website in coming weeks.  


Q: What happens to my Active Living membership?

Your membership is on hold. You have the option to keep your membership on hold until we reopen in the fall 2021, or you can submit a request for a refund. For assistance please email


Q: Will I need to wear a mask when I’m on campus?

Mask use will no longer be mandatory at the University of Calgary in alignment with provincial and city public health measures; however, individuals can still opt to wear them based on their own comfort level. Mask use is an individual choice, and no one should feel discouraged from using them.
