COVID-19 protocols for sport and recreation facilities
Proof of vaccination is no longer required
Effective May 4, 2023, proof of vaccination is no longer required on campus or to enter the UM Sport and Recreation facilities.
As of May 1, 2023, the University of Manitoba’s mandatory masking protocol will come to an end. From that date forward, masking will be strongly encouraged and UM will continue to supply masks as the university still recommends people use them, especially in indoor spaces that do not allow for distancing. This change will align UM with current public health practices across the province.
All facilities are at 100 percent capacity.
- Showers and lockers are available.
- Member towel service has resumed.
- Saunas are open and available for member use.
Booking is no longer required
Effective May 4, members and students are no longer required to book activities and workouts for the UM Sport and Recreation facilities, with the following exceptions:
- Booking is still required for climbing, racquetball, squash, table tennis, tennis and cricket.
- All activities in the Max Bell Centre need to be booked (track, rec skate and stick and puck).
- 10-pass visit holders will still need to book all sports and recreation activities.
UM students update:
Sport and Rec Fee
The Sport and Rec Fee was approved by the University’s Board of Governors in 2011 and supports the UM’s commitment to active living, sport and recreation.
The Fee is mandatory and applied to all students’ tuition based on their status of part-time or full-time study, regardless of access to facilities as the fee is not a user fee. With the goal of universally promoting wellness across our campuses through access to programming, the decision was made to not allow for opting out.
