Athletics & Recreation

Gee-Gees Rec is made up of 5 sectors: Aquatics, Camps, Client Services, Fitness & Rec, and Intramurals. There are many opportunities to take part in sports and recreation at the University of Ottawa! No matter your interest, there is something for everyone!

Gym goers
Montpetit Fitness will be closed as a preventative measure due to safety concerns. This is effective immediately and will be until January 8th, 2023, inclusively. The Health and Lifestyle Centre remains open in the Minto Sports Complex. Thank you for your understanding.

As of Monday, October 24, fitness centre users can once again walk in for a workout session. Booking a time slot will no longer be required, however, we will still be respecting our capacity limits.

Even though they can’t hear us cheering them on right now, our Gee-Gees student athletes are preparing to return to the fray. We can’t wait to see them in action and we wish them well in their off-season training!
