Free Week is a chance for new and returning students, staff & faculty, and the general public to try out any instructor-led classes with UBC Recreation. 

Try out as many classes as you want, for free!

We welcome you to drop-in to fitness, yoga, Pilates, dance, martial arts, boot camps, and aquatics classes for free during the second week of classes of every semester. No experience is required. Try as many classes as you would like, and register for your favourites!

New this Free Week: Stamp Card!

Get entered to win a free Fitness or Instructional class. Here’s how the stamp card works: Print off your stamp card at home, attend 3 out of 5 different stamp eligible classes, get your card stamped by your instructor at the end of the class, then hand it in at the SRC Operations Desk when you have at least 3 different stamps! Stamp card eligible classes are denoted by a star on the schedules below.
