Gym introductions and facility tours

Our team are delivering gym introductions and facility tours across the opening week of the new semester for all students.

The gym introductions offer a walk-around the fitness suite and strength and conditioning spaces with one of our fitness officers who will give you a brief overview of the gym areas and equipment so that you're well prepared for your first visit.

The facility tours will give you a chance to see all of our fantastic sports facilities and an opportunity to ask questions about all things sport, health and wellbeing at the University.

Gym introductions and facility tours can be booked via the app, online portal or at reception.

Student memberships include unlimited gym, swim, core classes and Just Play Sport sessions and cost only £15.99 per month on direct debit or £175 for 12 months (up-front payment) and can be purchased via the membership webpage or your Student portal.

Our facilities

Following a £20m makeover and introduction of a brand new leisure management system, our sports facilities are some of the best you’ll find. Our fitness suite has been kitted out with the latest Technogym equipment and over 100+ stations whilst our dedicated strength and conditioning area is packed with top-of-the-line Eleiko bars and plates, BLK BOX racks and Technogym plate-loaded machines.

Our new purpose-built studio hosts our diverse fitness class timetable and we’ve added another sports hall to accommodate our Sports Union clubs and Student Sport programme.

These, on top of our existing world-class tennis and swimming facilities and range of programmes, contribute to a sport, health and wellbeing experience designed for students of all abilities.
