Fitness Centre and Classes

We believe sport and exercise can bring people of all backgrounds together. That’s why we’ve invested £32 million into our sports facilities in order to create a better university experience for our students.

The Fitness Centre has already proven to be a very popular feature of the new Sports and Wellbeing Park. With state-of-the-art equipment and a bespoke personal training service it's not hard to understand why.

We are aware that each individual has different fitness and wellbeing needs and this is why our gym experts have created an exercise class time table which caters to all.

Fitness Centre Re-opening

In order to comply with government guidelines and help ensure our members are safe when exercising with us, we have made some changes to our day to day operations. This includes reducing the maximum capacity and introducing a one way flow of users alongside a rigorous cleaning regime.

All members will be required to pre-book their session via our online system which is available at the following link:

Staff have worked hard to produce an induction video. The video outlines the changes we have implemented to help ensure the gym is a safe environment as well as explaining the high standards of hygiene and compliance to guidance that we must all adhere to as a community of staff and members.

Please watch the video here.
