Fitness Centre Client Services Desk is Currently Under Construction

The Fitness Centre Client Services desk is currently under construction until late June. 

During this time, you can access the Fitness Centre using the temporary entrance (located next to the current entrance); signage will direct you to the entrance. Please note the basement door will not be accessible during construction. 

Please be aware that the temporary front desk cannot process any payments. The staff can still support with check-ins, provide wristbands, and court bookings. You will need to visit our alternative Client Services desk located in Kinesiology A Building (KNA 104) for payment support. 

We apologize for any inconvenience or delay this might cause.
