Important information regarding impact of coronavirus situation and campus closure on memberships
Frequently asked questions regarding gym membership: COVID-19, SPORT & FITNESS CENTRE CLOSURE
I pay for a monthly gym membership, will I still be charged whilst the centre is closed?
Your membership has been suspended until further notice. No further monthly payments (card / payroll) will be deducted while BGU Sport & Fitness Centre remains closed. Once we re-open your monthly membership payments (card / payroll) will be reactivated and your agreed membership term will then continue as per your membership agreement.
BGU Students: If we are unable to re-open the centre by 1st May and your agreed membership term is until 31st May then no further monthly payments will be deducted from your card.
I have paid up front for my membership (i.e. 3 months, 6 months, 1 year), what will happen to my membership?
Your membership has been suspended until further notice. Once BGU Sport & Fitness Centre re-opens your membership will be re-activated and the number of days we have been closed for will be added onto your membership.
I have paid upfront for my membership, but would not benefit from my membership being extended beyond the current membership term?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to explain your situation; we will confirm if you are entitled to a membership refund.
