Athletics Complex reopens for Community Members

To our Valued Athletics Complex members, staff, faculty, and students:

Our last message to the public on December 14 outlined the closure of our campus and Athletics Complex to the public to safely allow our students, staff, and faculty to complete the exam period as cases of the Omicron COVID-19 variant were rising.

While the number of positive cases remains high, we plan to welcome our community users with memberships to the Athletics Complex's Fitness Centre starting on Monday, January 10. Only those with existing memberships will be allowed to access the fitness centre along with Acadia students, staff and faculty. No drop-ins are permitted. You must be a current member to access the Fitness Centre.

Use of the Fitness Centre and other recreational opportunities outlined below requires an appointment, a valid membership card, and proof of double vaccination along with a government-issued photo ID. Masks will remain mandatory within the Athletics Complex.

Fitness appointments can be made at . Educational videos on how to enter the facility, use the fitness centre, and book an appointment can be found at

What facility features are available to community membership holders?

Monday's opening to the public includes the Fitness Centre, Open Swimming, Walking Track, and Open Skates. Use of these facility features MUST BE booked online at  Booking of open swimming, walking track, and open skates will begin online on Sunday.

For those users who have facility memberships that have been suspended since December 14, we are offering an extension to your facility membership for the time missed during the closure.
