Athletics and Recreation



What do I need to start using the athletics facilities?

All you need to do is bring your AUS ID and sports gear/equipment to get started.

Are there trainers to assist me?

Trainers are present during regular operating hours, and they will be more than happy to assist you.

Can I check out equipment?

Equipment is limited and provided during scheduled training sessions only. In exceptional cases, equipment is provided but the borrower will be charged with a replacement fee in case of loss or damage to the equipment.

How can I reserve a facility?

Reservations can be made in person at the Sports Complex reception or by calling 06 515 2778.

How can I get a permanent locker?

Lockers are provided for a day's use only. Unfortunately, due to the limited number of lockers we are unable to provide this service.

Do you provide towels?

We don't provide towels; you have to bring your own.

What are the facilities with gender schedules?

The swimming pool and fitness centers have separate schedules for men and women. The rest of the facilities are available for both men and women from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Saturday-Thursday, and from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Friday

What if I forget my ID-can I still enter the Sports Complex?

Yes, but the receptionist will note that you are entering without an ID. You are given three chances; at the fourth time you will not be allowed to enter unless you present a valid AUS ID.
