Further Information

Facility use guidelines

We continue to follow the Scottish Government's CV19 guidelines. At this time members can only access gyms, the swimming pool, climbing or classes by pre-booking online. You will not be able to access the facilities unless you have pre-booked online. Please familiarise yourself with our facility use guidelines before visiting.

Issues when booking your gym, swim or climbing session

You will be able to book a session after you buy your membership online, however, please allow up to 30 minutes for your information to update. If you try too soon you will see a 'too soon to book' message.

Direct Debit

At this time we are unable to offer Direct Debit as a payment method for memberships. Existing members with a membership paid by annual Direct Debit will be able to renew their membership online when their current membership expires. 

The Easter Bush Gym

Due to its smaller capacity access to the Easter Bush gym is restricted to students and staff of the University of Edinburgh, as well as tenants of the Roslin Innovation Centre. Tenants can purchase a "Staff" membership which includes the use of the Easter Bush gym using their University of Edinburgh visitor card. 

Climbing and Bouldering

We won’t be offering a membership that includes climbing at the moment. This is because  we have had to significantly reduce capacity at the climbing wall and in bouldering to comply with social distancing guidance. Instead, it will become a bookable activity (like squash or court sports) with gym members being able to book an hour and a half slot at the wall for only £3 a climb. 

One-off Gym Entry

Entry on a pay-as-you-go basis is available for University of Edinburgh students and staff at a cost of £6.00 per person. During peak or busy times we reserve the right to withdraw pay-as-you-access. By paying the PAYG charge, the user agrees to our terms and conditions including the University Sport & Exercise Rules.
