Reimbursement

Receive Up to $100:

The University may reimburse you up to $100.00/year for a membership to any commercial fitness facility OTHER than SamFit. There are two options listed below and depending on how you pay for your membership you may be eligible to receive a reimbursement. Some gyms offer a discount to WesternU students – please see below for locations.


 

Exclusions Apply:

Student must be enrolled in a membership (monthly or annual) to any commercial fitness facility or online gym membership. Purchasing a set/package/plan of individual classes does not constitute a membership (e.g. yoga classes, cycling, etc.). Apartment complex facilities, unless optional and billed separately, are not eligible.

We’ve expanded the reimbursement option to include online memberships as this may be a more beneficial to students. Please note that the same rules and restrictions apply.

  • The membership must be in your name.
  • If prepaid, must show proof of payment for the full year.
  • If monthly, you must have proof of payment for at least 10-months (payments can be made to different locations. For example: online gym for 6 months and then an in-person gym for 4 months)
  • The online membership must have a physical fitness/activity component.
  • Class passes, punch cards, home equipment and supplies are not eligible.
  • Only one reimbursement request accepted per student each academic year.
