Member/Guest Policies

Facility Access

All members must present a valid U of T student card or athletic membership card to access the Athletic Centre, Goldring Centre and Varsity Centre. Membership cards are non-transferable. All students and members must enter and exit the athletic facilities through the main entrances only. Unauthorized entry compromises the security of the facilities and will result in suspension of membership privileges.


The University of Toronto respects your privacy. Personal information provided is collected for purposes related to the administration of your athletic membership. We will send notices and communications related to your membership to the email address that you provided. At all times personal information will be protected in accordance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

If you have questions, please refer to or contact the University Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Coordinator at 416-946-7303.


All participants acknowledge and accept the risks inherent to participation in sports and recreation activities. Injuries may result from one’s actions, or the actions of others, or a combination of both. Personal behaviour during programs and services should be conducted in consideration of other members and guests.

In case of personal injury or accident, facility staff should be contacted immediately.

AEDs (Automatic External Defibrillators) are available at the Athletic Centre, Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport, and Varsity Centre in the event of an emergency.

Yellow call phones are located throughout the facilities that link directly with U of T police and should be used in the event of threats to personal safety and criminal acts.

Private instruction and coaching

Students, members and guests are not permitted to conduct or solicit any form of business within the facilities (e.g., personal training, private lessons).

For personal training needs, contact Douglas Rosa, Coordinator of Personal Training and Nutrition.


Photography and recording devices, including the use of camera phones, are prohibited in all facilities. Exceptions can be made only with advance permission of the Faculty’s communications office.

Please contact 416-978-4112 for more information.
