Visiting Our Facility

*Update August 17th, 2023*
Thank-you for your patience as we continue to work through our renovations. There has been a significant amount of progress made, but we have run into some delays due to high humidity levels, unique weather events, and shipping holdups this summer. We are currently targeting a reopening date of early November with an update coming in late-September. 

The scope of this work is substantial and will benefit our students, campus community and our region for years to come. As a quick reminder the improvements being made at the Langille Athletic Centre include the following:

  • Replacement of the ventilation system allowing for air conditioning in strength and cardio rooms
  • New gym floor and painting of the ceiling
  • Replacement of the building’s electrical distribution system
  • New strength equipment in Weight Room 1  

As a thank you for your continued loyalty, we will be providing everyone who had an active membership at the time of our closure with a total of four extra weeks, which will be added to your membership period upon re-opening.  


We are pleased to announce that the Langille Athletic Centre will be undergoing significant upgrades to help improve our user experience. The work will be taking place over the spring and summer months starting April 23, 2023 and requires we close the facility to our members.

The renovations will include:
    •    Replacement of the ventilation system
    •    New gym floor and paint the ceiling
    •    Replacement of the building’s electrical distribution system
    •    New strength equipment in Weight Room 1

These renovations will not only modernize the space and make it more energy efficient, but they will also provide a more modern athletic environment better suited for high performance sport while still accommodating the needs of recreational users. Air conditioning will be installed in the strength training, cardio, and squash court side of the facility which will allow for a more comfortable training experience year-round. The renewed space will help recruit more student-athletes to the University and will better serve the fitness needs of our student population and community members.

While this will result in some short-term impacts to member activity in our facility, we’d like to thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we work to improve everyone’s experience at the Langille Athletic Centre for many years to come.
