Drop-in Rec

The new GGAC Walking/Jogging Track is open during Drop-in Recreation scheduled times only.  Rec basketball and volleyball are open sports available to all and which are great fun to play with all other members in groups which help you interact with newer people.

Individuals with a Base Membership have access to all Drop-in Recreation Activities (Students have paid their Athletics Base Membership within their Academic Fees).  Non-Members can view Daily Access Fee details on the Membership page.

A selection of equipment is available for loan to Members during recreational times.  Please see Client Services for availability, pricing and fees for lost equipment.  All rental equipment must be returned 30 minutes prior to the building closure.  Equipment lending is NOT available to Daily Access Pass users.  Equipment lending to Members allows us to better track equipment and reduce the increasing amount of Lost/Missing equipment annually.

New GGAC Walking/Jogging Track

The new GGAC Walking/Jogging Track is now open during scheduled times only.  Only clean, indoor shoes are permitted on the track, spiked shoes not permitted.  Please follow posted daily directional and lane signage.  For running and sprinting options, refer to the Rec Track times in the Field House.


Balls are available for use. Lost or damaged balls are charged at replacement cost (approximately $35).


Nets, lines and volleyballs are available for use. Lost or broken equipment is charged at replacement cost.
