Update on our temporary closure.

The Murdock Fitness and Aquatics Center will be closed through June 30, 2020 in compliance with guidance and directives from the State of Maine and the Chancellor. It is expected that the Murdock Fitness and Aquatics Center will open later this summer with appropriate protocols in place in accordance with UMS, state and federal health and safety guidance. The opening date will be published as soon as it is known. 

Memberships will be automatically extended by the number of days that we remain closed.

We appreciate everyone’s patience and diligence in keeping all of our friends, family, and neighbors healthy.
