Frequently asked Questions:

Where exactly can I pick up my pass?

  • While the membership office is open (click here for hours), you can pick up your pass there. If the membership office is closed, you can pick up your pass at the front desk of Pottruck Health & Fitness Center or Fox Fitness Center. Your professor/mentor must be present in order to pick up the pass.

What can I do with my mentor at the gym?

  • Your mentor can accompany you to group exercise classes or the climbing wall if you have already enrolled in the program. Otherwise, you and your mentor will have access to the weight room, cardio equipment, pool, basketball courts, and any other part of the facility included in your basic membership.

Can I use Fox Fitness Center?

  • Yes! Use of Fox Fitness Center is highly encouraged, as this facility is typically less crowded than Pottruck. If you plan to use Fox Fitness Center, you can pick up your pass at Fox.
