University Recreation Wellington provides sports, recreation, wellbeing, fitness and club services for the community.

COVID-19 information—5 March 2021

Both the Recreation Centre on Kelburn campus and Pipitea Fitness are open and currently operating under alert level 1 guidelines.

Students are asked to follow contact tracing processes while on campus. Please download and use the Government’s NZ COVID Tracer app (including enabling the Bluetooth function) and scan QR codes wherever you see them on campus, or keep a manual record of your movements.

It is important to continue following all public health recommendations to help protect yourself and others. Specifically:

  • Stay at home if you feel unwell. Anyone that becomes ill should remain at home and must seek medical advice through Healthline—0800 358 5453—or their GP.
  • Regularly wash your hands with soap and water.

Bookings are not required under alert level 1, however we recommend you bring water and a sweat towel with you for all visits to the Recreation Centre.
