UTMB Alumni Field House

UTMB recognizes the importance of providing an environment that encourages fitness and personal wellbeing. In 1968, the graduates and friends of UTMB contributed funds to establish the Alumni Field House. For over 40 years the UTMB Alumni Field House has been a place for students, alumni, employees, retirees, and their families to unwind, get in shape, and have fun. Thanks to the generous support of the Moody Foundation and alumni funds, the Field House is a state-of-the-art fitness and wellness facility offering the latest in exercise equipment as well as opportunities for research, work/study programs, and internships. A recent renovation has increased the size of the facility to more than 49,000 square feet.

Through payment of the student service fee, each student has a membership at the UTMB Alumni Field House. Students may obtain a family membership for their immediate family members (spouse and children under twenty-five years of age) living in the same household for a yearly fee of $225. Lockers are also available for an additional fee.
