In accordance with public health advice, and to be consistent with decisions made by Dalhousie, all athletic facilities are currently closed to the King’s community and our public rental groups and community members.

Plans are underway to open our weight and cardio rooms on an appointment-only basis. Gym users will need to book your time 48 hours in advance and cancel within 24 hours of your booking, with limited spots and numbers being offered (3 in weight room and 5 in cardio). All equipment will be cleaned and sanitized after use as per health regulations.

This will not occur until quarantining is complete and everyone is safely settled.

Please continue referring to COVID-19 resource page for updates.

The King’s Gym is a stone’s throw away from your classrooms — just across the Quad. Our facilities are ideal for varsity athletics and intramural/recreational sports. As a King’s student, you’ll also benefit from access to Dalhousie’s athletic facilities, including membership to Dalplex.
