Gymnasium - Montpetit

We are excited to be re-opening many of our facilities  as of November 16, 2020. We have updated a number of our procedures to ensure the safety of all visitors. Please be sure to read these safety procedures before visiting our facilities. The pool will now be open to both students and employees, while other sports facilities such as fitness centres and gyms will continue to be available only to students until further notice. This is due to the fact that sports facility capacity still remains reduced to ensure that physical distancing and other safety measures are maintained.  We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to welcoming employees back to all of our facilities soon.

The Montpetit Hall gymnasium hosts the women’s and men’s basketball and women’s volleyball varsity teams home games.
