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.
