A fitness card at USM costs SEK 145 per month and is valid for all three premises, at Utopia and Navet, located in the centre of Umeå, and in Mariehem. The card is paid for through a monthly salary deduction of SEK 145.

In order to be eligible for the discounted fitness card, you must at least have a three-month employmenet at Umeå University with a level of occupation of at least 20 per cent from the application date and onwards. You must also receive your paycheck from Umeå University itself. The offer also applies to those who are on full parental leave or sick leave. When you apply for a card, you also agree that the Payroll administration sends information about you to USM. The fitness card has a contract time of 12 months that starts the day your application is registered. It is not possible to cancel the card during the contract time.

The card is personal and may not be lent, sold or transferred.

The fitness card at USM has been procured by the University. This means that the University cannot provide any reimbursement for exercise cards at other facilities or other forms of exercise.
