Closure Notice

The University has a great responsibility to its students, faculty and staff when considering the return to full operations. We are ready and eager to provide the UVA community with fitness and recreational opportunities once the University is able to return to comprehensive operations safely and effectively. We are privileged to support this University and we believe in its greater mission. We're all in this together! If you have questions, please reach out to covidinformation@virginia.edu.

When we initially open, we will start with the fitness area at the AFC and the pool at NGRC. The hours and experience will be modified to ensure safety for students, members and staff. We will announce opening details as soon as possible.

In the meantime, please try some virtual programs.

Class of 2024! Get oriented to on-Grounds recreation opportunities.

I felt confident enough after my beginner swim class to participate in an indoor triathlon! My instructors were all great, encouraging and very willing to adapt the class for everyone's needs!
