UTMB Alumni Field House

 

Dear Members,
Thanks to a very generous grant from The Sealy & Smith Foundation we have been able to purchase new cardio and strength equipment from Marathon Fitness.  You will notice blue tags on the machines that are to be replaced.
In order for the transition of equipment to happen, the Alumni Field House will be closed from Monday, December 18th through Saturday December 23rd for removal and installation of the equipment. We will also be closed on December 24th and 25th for the winter holidays. 
The Field House will re-open on Tuesday, December 26th.  All the equipment will be ready for use on the 26th.  There will be some limitation to the cardio equipment’s entertainment options until the final implementation step at the end of January.  Service will not be interrupted for that final phase.

 

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 Alumni funds, the Moody Foundation and The Sealy & Smith Foundation 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 an additional yearly fee. Lockers are also available for an additional fee.
