Off-term memberships
If you are an active UM student currently not enrolled in classes, you can purchase a discounted student membership for the term you are not enrolled in.

To purchase your membership, visit one of our Customer Service Desk locations with your UM Student ID card.

The off-term rate for the 2019 fall term is $100 + GST. Membership starts September 1 and expires December 31.

Student partner membership
A student's partner can purchase a Fall, Winter, or Spring/Summer term membership for $35 per month provided that the primary student member has an active pass for the Fall and/or Winter term.
