Student Membership Information

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020-21 athletics and recreation fees are being waived for the fall and winter terms. All Dalhousie students will have access to athletics facilities despite not paying the fees.

Under regular circumstances, full-time Dal students pay athletics and recreation fees as part of their tuition, giving them automatic acess to Dalplex and Sexton Gym.

*Full-time refers to a student enrolled in three (3) or more classes during the current term (summer, fall, winter).

Part-time Dalhousie students, PGME and co-op students don't pay the same fees as full-time students, which unfortunately means their gym membership is not included in their fees.
