Further to the ongoing planning around COVID-19 and in response to the March 17, 2020 message from the Provost, all buildings operated by the Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education (FKPE) and U of T Sport and Rec are closed to students, members of the public, staff and faculty.

Below we have outlined how these changes will affect memberships.

Payments and Refunds

  • Existing Sport and Rec memberships of non-student community members will be extended for the length of the closure. As an alternative, members who wish to receive a pro-rated refund should contact us at
  • In light of the closure, we will not be processing the payments for community members currently on the monthly payment plan, starting April 1, 2020.
  • For programs or services that included a registration fee for participation, that fee will be refunded in a prorated manner. We will reach out to those affected shortly and appreciate your patience.

Locker Update

At this time, all locker contents will remain intact; no lockers will be cleared out until further notice. Once more facility access information is made available, a locker procedure communication will be sent out to all members/students. 

All U of T students who have paid KPE athletic incidental fees are automatically members

U of T students, who pay mandatory athletic incidental fees, are a priority in our Sport & Rec facilities. The student body informs and governs our decision-making processes involving the provision of recreational and athletic programs and services within our facilities. All community members, including U of T affiliates, are welcome to purchase a Sport & Rec membership, provided that they are aware that student priority programming may limit access to certain facility areas or hours.

Please be advised that we are a multi-use facility with limited availability of activities such as tennis, badminton, drop-in track, and long-course swimming. It is recommended that individuals consider this when purchasing a membership. No compensation or refunds are provided due to closures, schedule changes or varying availability of programming.

All members/students must read and abide by the Member/Guest Policies.

Students must abide by the University of Toronto Code of Student Conduct.

Fall/winter term access

Paid through annual student incidental fees.

Summer term access

Undergraduate Arts & Sciences students enrolled in summer courses pay an athletic incidental fee and have access to U of T's Sport and Recreation facilities from May 21 – September 1, 2020.

Undergraduate students not enrolled in summer term courses must purchase a summer membership to continue using the facilities after May 20, 2020.

Graduate students and students enrolled in professional faculties (i.e., medicine, nursing, dentistry, pharmacy, occupational therapy and physical therapy) do not pay KPE incidental fees in the summer term and must purchase a summer membership if they wish to use U of T's Sport and Recreation facilities after May 20, 2020.

Students who enroll in summer courses after paying for a summer membership will receive a full refund for their summer membership purchase. Please refer to our membership plans for more information.
