Most UVic students have an Athletics & Recreation fee included as part of their tuition payment. These students have access to a Base Membership with the Base Benefits listed on Page 3. At a minimum, base membership is required for access to included facilities such as McKinnon pool and weight room. Your validated UVic ONECard is your membership. If the above fees were not included as part of your tuition or you want additional opportunities for recreation, including access to CARSA, you can purchase CARSA memberships in person at Membership Services.


There are no refunds for any courses or programs unless they are canceled by Vikes Athletics and Recreation. Consideration will be given to those registrants providing signed doctor's certificates or academic certificates indicating timetable changes. A $10 administration fee will be charged for all approved refunds. All refund requests must be received within 6 months of date of purchase.

A $25 fee will be charged for NSF cheques. Credits on account are valid for 1 year from date of application.


Athletics and Recreation works cooperatively with Recreation Integration Victoria to facilitate active lifestyles for people with disabilities. The Leisure Assistant Pass provides free access to a person accompanying a student with disabilities as a one-on-one assistant. Please call Recreation Integration Victoria at 250-477–6314 to arrange for a pass.


In an effort to prevent unnecessary wear and tear on equipment and machines, all participants are asked to wear clean, athletic clothing and closed-toe shoes while working out or participating in activities. Shirts must be worn in all areas.


Physiotherapy services are available to UVic students, staff and members of the community.
