UFH Recreational Program Account Sign-Up 

Our Community and Recreation Team has many fun and exciting programs planned for the winter semester, which we will announce in the coming weeks. In the meantime, we wanted to remind residents that to sign up for our free community and recreation programming, a recreation account is needed to register. The account approval process on our system takes 2-3 days so, creating your account before registration opens is advised. You can create your recreation account here. 

UFH Wellness Programs 

If you are interested in participating in any of our Yoga/Fitness/Stay Active programs this semester, please sign up for the waitlist and we’ll alert you to when a space becomes available. Our staff are working tirelessly to accommodate your requests; however, program start dates and sessions offered will be varied based on the spots available and instructors’ schedule for the new semester.
