Membership & Booking

How are UofG Sport responding to COVID-related staff absences?

As you can appreciate, this is a constantly evolving situation and we're doing all we can to ensure our facilities remain unaffected by staffing shortages due to isolation and illness from COVID.

The area most likely to close due to last-minute staffing issues is the swimming pool. Please call 0141 330 4540 before you set off to the Stevenson Building to ensure the pool is open for use.

Thank you for your understanding.

Sessions & Classes

Can I access the changing rooms?

We're pleased to say that the changing rooms have now reopened, but we would encourage members to continue to arrive at the facilities gym-ready whenever possible, as changing room capacity will be limited.

Please be aware:

  • The UofG Sport team will be managing a regular cleaning regime
  • Capacities are clearly outlined on the door for your information
  • There are cleaning products throughout the space for you to use
  • Hairdryers can be used
  • Towels are available for hire
  • Lockers can be used – you'll need your own padlock and can't leave kit overnight

Let's work together to keep the facilities as clean and safe as we can!

Are there lockers available?

There are lockers available for swimming pool users, which require you to bring your own padlock. (We have padlocks for sale at reception if you forget yours or don't have one.)

In addition, we now have lockers available for use on Levels 4 & 5 (for non-pool users). Most of these require a £1 coin or trolley token which is refundable. There are also a small selection of lockers which require a padlock on Level 4.

Lockers should be cleaned before and after use.

Padlocks should not be left on lockers overnight. Lockers will be opened in this instance and a £10 charge will be accrued.

As indicated in our Ts&Cs (Clause 50c), UofG Sport takes no responsibility for the loss, theft or damage of any items brought into the Facilities, unless UofG Sport is shown to have been negligent.
