Member Access

Membership Is required to access facilities and programming

All U of T students who have paid KPE athletic incidental fees are automatically members of the Athletic Centre, Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport and Varsity Centre and do not need to purchase a membership. This includes part-time and full-time undergraduate and graduate students.

Cards must be scanned to gain access

TCards or Sport & Rec membership cards must be scanned at the turnstile to access our facilities. Cards are not transferrable. 

Forgot card

Students and members may access the facility without their TCard/Sport & Recreation membership card 3 times within a full year (September 1 – August 31).  

If the purpose of the visit is for drop-in sports or registered programs or Intramural/Tri-Campus leagues, after three uses of the ‘forgot card’ privilege, a student or member will be denied entry. Lost TCards must be reported and can be replaced for a $20 fee at the TCard Office, located at the Koffler Student Services Centre. Non-student members can purchase a replacement membership card for $9.74 + HST at the Athletic Centre, Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport, and Varsity Centre. Alternatively, the student or member may leave to retrieve their card, or choose not to access the facilities at that time. 


Policies and Code of Conduct:

Students must abide by the University of Toronto Code of Student Conduct. All Sport & Rec participants and members must abide by our guest policies:

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 www.utoronto.ca/privacy 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.

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

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 comm.kpe@utoronto.ca for more information.

The Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education has the authority to suspend membership rights and privileges when offending behaviour is exhibited by a member.

Offending behaviour includes but is not limited to:

  • disorderly conduct,
  • harassment,
  • disruptive behaviour,
  • persistent disregard of facility rules and regulations; and
  • default in payment of membership fees.

Rule violations are dealt with under the procedures approved by the Council of Athletics and Recreation.

A TCard is a physical identification and credential for on-campus purposes. Data from this card, including photo, UTORid, and student number is used to grant secure access to Sport & Recreation facilities. The consistent use of this card allows us to ensure the security of our facilities for all of our students, staff and members. Sport and Rec membership cards act in the same manner, to preserve the integrity of our programs and services, and to maintain a safe environment. All cards are non-transferrable. 


All U of T students, staff/faculty, and community members are required to scan a valid TCard or Sport & Recreation membership card every time they enter the turnstiles at the Athletic Centre, Goldring Centre, and Varsity Centre. 

Students and members may access the facility without their TCard/Sport & Recreation membership card three times within a full year (September 1 – August 31). 

Access for Drop-in or Registered Sport and Recreation Programs and Intramural/Tri-Campus Leagues
If the purpose of the visit is for drop-in or registered sport and recreation programs or Intramural/Tri-Campus leagues, after three uses of the ‘forgot card’ privilege, a student or member will be denied entry. Lost TCards must be reported and can be replaced for a $20 fee at the TCard Office, located at the Koffler Student Services Centre. Non-student members can purchase a replacement membership card for $9.74 + HST at the Athletic Centre, Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport, and Varsity Centre. Alternatively, the student or member may leave to retrieve their card, or choose not to access the facilities at that time.

Access for Other Reasons
If the purpose of the visit is not for drop-in or registered programs, or Intramural/Tri-Campus leagues (i.e. work, academic pursuits, varsity practices), after three uses of the ‘forgot card’ privilege, students and staff will be permitted access without having to retrieve their card. A follow-up communication will be sent to their manager, coach or applicable staff member.
