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 graduate students registered for nine credits or more are automatically charged the Wellness Center membership fee.
If your studies preclude you from using the Wellness Center, you may waive the membership fee by downloading the Wellness Center Waiver Form from http://www.miami.edu/account-services/WellnessWaiver.pdf. The waiver must be completed and provided to the Office of Student Account Services no later than the last day to add a class during each semester. The form provides deadline date information. You may fax the completed waiver form to the following number: 305-284-3895. The waiver must be processed each semester that you wish to waive this fee. This fee cannot be waived if you are a full-time undergraduate, full-time law or a medical student. The last day to submit your Wellness Center Waiver Form to the Office of Student Account Services is limited to semester's last day to add a course as established by the Registrar's office. These dates are as follows:
Fall 2012 -- September 2nd 2012
Spring 2013--January 30th, 2012
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.
