New Access Control & Membership Cards

As part of Trent Athletics’ new registration software, we will be implementing a new access control system in mid-February 2018. Community members are asked to please stop by the Sales Centre to get your new membership card printed in advance of the “go live” date. Click here for more details.


Maintenance Work starting Friday, January 26th

As part of the new access control project, beginning Friday, January 26 at 9:00 am work will begin on the replacement of the existing entry point. During this time you will still need to swipe in at the front desk, but you will use the current exit gates as the entry and exit points.

Every effort will be made to minimize any inconvenience to our members. Please contact ac@trentu.ca if you have any questions.


Give the Gift of Fitness!
Show someone special in your life just how much they mean to you. Give them the gift of fitness with gift certificates from the Athletics Centre. Gift certificates are available to purchase at the Sales Centre and can be redeemed for the purchase of an Athletics Centre membership or any of our other programs and services, including personal training.
