New membership policies

The Murdock Fitness and Aquatics Center is undergoing significant administrative restructuring, with the ultimate goal of providing a better experience for our community patrons, students, faculty and staff. To that end, we have introduced a new streamlined membership fee structure, effective in April.
Before visiting the fitness center, ensure you have read and understood our health and safety policies.

If you purchased a membership prior to March 2020 and were unable to to make use your plan due to the closure, please contact David Invergo, with your name, phone number and mailing address to receive a reimbursement of unused funds.

General memberships 

Any adult, 18 years of age or older, who does not have affiliation to the University through other categories, is eligible for a community membership.

Monthly memberships

Individual: $25/month

Additional family: $10/month

Additional Family (AKA “Secondary”) Members: Secondary full memberships must be purchased by the Primary member. Acceptable Secondary pass holders include:

  • Spouse / domestic partner as defined by the University of Maine’s health benefits plans. In other words, the primary and secondary adult pass holder must have been in a relationship for at least 6 months and intend to remain so indefinitely, live together, neither one be married to anyone else, share significant financial responsibility for each other, not be related by blood to a degree that would prohibit marriage in the State of Maine, and be jointly responsible for each other’s common welfare.
