The University offers a variety of leisure activities for all students to participate in. Specifically, you have the benefit of using the Wellness Center - a premier fitness facility located on the Coral Gables campus. The Wellness Center has all the amenities of a typical gym: cardio and weight training equipment, aerobics, basketball, racquetball, and squash courts, pool, and jogging track. In addition, the Wellness Center offers massage therapy, personal training, wellness education classes, instructional classes, fitness testing, juice bar, and more. Membership to the Wellness Center is exclusive to UM students, faculty, staff, alumni, and their spouses and dependents. Each semester, all full-time graduate students are automatically charged the Wellness Center membership fee.

If you are a Graduate (excluding Law and Medical), Medical Science, or RSMAS student then you may waive the membership fee through your CaneLink student portal, under Finances, select the Optional Fees tab, select the Wellness Center Waiver, and submit. It will can take up to 24 hours for the wellness center waiver credit to appear on the student's account after the waiver is submitted. If the wellness center waiver does not appear as optional, this means you are not eligible to waive the fee.

The deadline to opt out of the wellness fee is the last day to drop a course without a "W". The waiver will no longer be an option after the deadline.

Please note that failure to use the Center's facilities will not relieve you of your obligation to pay your fee once the waiver deadline has passed.
