Parking update: Please be aware that parking is now limited at the LB Gym (aka the pool) due to the construction of the upcoming new Kinesiology Building. The eastern end of the LB Gym is no-longer a parking lot, as that area needs to stay clear for emergency vehicle access. There's heaps of parking space available at the LB Rink (only 400 m away on University Ave) and spots are still available on the western section of the LB Gym. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this transition.

Team Building Workshops

Looking for an opportunity for staff bonding? Are you hoping to work on trust, communication and respect in the workplace? Hire UREC for a custom team building workshop!

The price and time are flexible to meet the needs of your group. URec can come to your school, office or your staff team is welcome to come venture and work together on the UNB Campus (even at our Climbing Wall!) 

All URec Team Building Workshops are also available en français.

All participants must read and sign the URec Waiver Form in order to participate in these workshops.

The UNB Climbing Wall

Located in the LB Gym, the climbing wall is a bouldering-dedicated gym that may be rented by the hour for exercise with friends, classmates or colleagues! The climbing wall is also a great location for bachelor/bachlorette parties or for hosting a child’s birthday party! 

Climb on!
