We can help you take the first step towards a healthier lifestyle. Whether or not you’ve played sport, or been inside a gym, there is something for everyone.
Student group walks
Take the first step and come along to one of our student walking groups around campus. These are free for everyone and allow you to get outside for some fresh air and meet new faces. You will find these advertised in the sports app and Be Connected calendar, with information of times and meeting points.
Student yoga classes
Come along to our student yoga classes that will take place across our student accommodation sites every second Thursday over lunchtime.
Just Play Sport
If you’re looking to take part in some sport for fun, with no commitment, our Just Play Programme makes sports sociable and fun. These sessions give you the opportunity to come and try out a variety of sports and make new friends. Don’t worry if you’ve not played before, our activity leaders will be there to help you out. You can book a session under our Activity Timetable. Sessions cost £2.20 or are free with your sports centre membership.
Come along to one of our monthly events, led by our student sports leaders. Our monthly events are a great way to meet fellow students, have fun, and try new activities.
