24/7 is here!

We have some exciting news. To meet the changing needs of our members and the campus community UniActive Innovation Campus is now open 24/7! 24/7 access means that you can workout at the time that best suits you.

The move to 24/7 will brings with it a few changes to access, gym supervision and membership inclusions for some current members.

The gym will be unsupervised outside of these time slots.

How to Get 24/7 Access
To access UniActive Innovation Campus outside of the supervised times members will be required to have a 24/7 Access Card and complete a 15 minute safety induction. Inductions are available during staffed hours. 
Access cards can be purchased for $20. This is a one time fee however lost cards will incur a fee for each card.

 a new name and new look

We have some exciting news. We’re stepping up our game with a new name and a new look! From 19th August 2017 UOW Recreation and Aquatic Centre (URAC) and iChealth will be known as… UniActive!

Why the change? UniActive forms part of a new ‘family’ of businesses and programs managed by UOW Pulse Ltd which are tasked with delivering a campus service experience to meet the needs of an ever evolving campus life. The ‘family’ also includes UniShop, UniBar, UniClubs and UniLife for communications on campus. UniActive was selected as our new name after consultation with stakeholder groups.

So what can you expect from UniActive? You can expect the same friendly team and the same high quality equipment and facilities at two great locations, Wollongong Campus and Innovation Campus.

As sad as we’ll be to say goodbye to ‘URAC’ and ‘iChealth’, we’re also thrilled about our fresh new look and direction. Our new brand will be rolled out over the remainder of the year so stay tuned for the exciting transformation!
