Dartmouth Fitness Membership at Alumni Gym

This benefit provides a free Dartmouth Fitness Basic level annual membership to Alumni Gym (value: $355) beginning July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020. If you would like to upgrade to a Plus level membership, providing you with access to Zimmerman Fitness Center, you will be able to do so by paying the additional cost ($110).

Please note: All Dartmouth Fitness memberships expire on June 30 of each year and renewals begin on July 1. This benefit applies only to memberships beginning July 1, 2019, or later in 2019; any membership purchases prior to July 1, 2019 will be the sole responsibility of the employee. Memberships are pro-rated beginning in November 2019; if you purchase a membership in November or December 2019, you will receive a free Basic level membership (value: $255), or if you upgrade to a Plus level membership, you would need to pay the additional cost ($70).  Annual membership renewals must be made in person at the Dartmouth Fitness Membership Office to receive this benefit. Their office hours are Mon-Fri. 9am-11:30am and 12:30pm-5pm. There will be no tax refunds if you get a refund on your membership; consult with a tax advisor.

  • Dartmouth Fitness Basic level membership provides access to the indoor racquet and squash courts, indoor track and gymnasium, and the swimming pools within Alumni Gym.
  • Dartmouth Fitness Plus level membership provides access to all of the Alumni Gym facilities included in the Basic level membership and also to the Zimmerman Fitness Center, which has a wide selection of cardio and strength training equipment.

I am a current Dartmouth Fitness member, how will the Dartmouth Fitness Membership wellness program option work for me?

When you renew your membership in July 2019, you will receive the value of the Basic membership for free. If you are a Plus member, you will only be charged for the difference in cost between the two plans ($110). You must renew your membership in person at the Dartmouth Fitness Membership Office (you will not receive this benefit if you renew your membership online). 

I am not a current Dartmouth Fitness member, how will the Dartmouth Fitness Membership wellness program option work for me?

If you purchase a gym membership between July 1 and December 31, 2019, you will receive the value of the basic membership for free. If you choose to upgrade to a Plus level membership, you will be responsible for covering the difference in cost (up to $110). If you choose to purchase a membership prior to July 1, 2019, you are responsible for paying the cost of your membership through June 30, 2019. This benefit apples only to memberships beginning July 1 - December 31, 2019.

If I am a current Dartmouth Fitness member, can I renew my membership online in 2019?

No, as this is a benefit election, you will need to renew your membership in-person at the membership office to receive this benefit.

Can I use the Dartmouth Fitness Membership option towards the cost of a locker at Alumni Gym?

No, lockers are not included in this benefit. If you would like to purchase a locker, you will be responsible for covering the cost.

Can I use the Dartmouth Fitness Membership option towards the cost of FLIP classes?

No, FLIP classes are not included in the Dartmouth Fitness Membership option.  

Can I use the Dartmouth Fitness Membership option before July 1, 2019?

No. Since Dartmouth Fitness Memberships run on a fiscal year basis starting July 1, this benefit is not available for use until July 1, 2019. If you decide to purchase a partial year membership prior to July 1, you will be responsible for covering the cost of that membership. When you go to renew your membership for July 1, you would then receive the value of a free basic level membership ($355) at time of renewal (renewals must be done in person).

 If I have a spouse enrolled on my medical plan, are they also eligible for the Dartmouth Fitness Membership option?

No. The Dartmouth Fitness Membership option is available for active employees only.

Is the Dartmouth Fitness Membership option considered taxable income?

Yes, this benefit is considered taxable income and applicable taxes will be withheld from payroll.

Can I change wellness program options mid-year?

No, once a wellness program option has been elected, no changes or exceptions will be made. Active benefits eligible employees will be able to change their elections on an annual basis during Open Enrollment (October/November). Any elections made during open enrollment will be effective January 1 of the following calendar year.

Does Dartmouth College have discounted membership rates at any local fitness facilities?

No. There are currently no discounted memberships at any local fitness facilities.
