Phase 2 of the Manitoba Government's plan to restore services allows for the reopening of fitness clubs, gyms and training facilities, provided appropriate protocols are in place.


The University is developing an integrated plan to support a safe return to campus involving all departments of the University of Winnipeg. While the provincial directives may allow for the phased restoration of some services, the timing for opening our facilities will be determined in the context of the greater University plan. We will be communicating opening dates and the associated protocols once they are determined.


In the meantime, the Duckworth Centre and RecPlex will remain closed to activities.


Recreation Services at the University of Winnipeg is committed to the safety of all students, faculty, staff and public users of our facilties.


Bill Wedlake Fitness Centre Memberships & Lockers


For anyone affected by the COVID-19 closure, we will be offering membership and locker extensions for time lost. If you do not want to extend these services, please let us know and we can arrange for a refund based on the March 14th closure. Please email to arrange a time to complete the refund over the phone.


Picking up Locker Items


Any locker items that were not picked up prior to the closure will not be cleared out during this time. We will update members when the closure is lifted as to when they will be able to retrieve personal items. If you would like to pick up your items immediately, please contact Security Services at (204)786-9272. You will need to sign in at the Security office and a guard will escort you to the change room to provide access to the space.
