Location

The ARC is located in the UBC Life Building (formerly the old Student Union Building) on the basement and main level of the building. Throughout the spring and early summer of 2018, there will be ongoing construction in the area, so access to the ARC will require users to walk through the Life Building and use either the elevator or east stairs to reach the fitness centre and changeroom areas in the basement level.

Memberships

Current fitness memberships at the BirdCoop will also be valid at the ARC until their expiration. Community, staff, and faculty memberships (1 month, 3 month, 9 month, and 1 year) will be valid for access to the ARC (and the BirdCoop) for the duration of their term. All student memberships will expire on April 30th.

Updated fitness membership rates will be available beginning May 1st.
