Free sport and activities

‌‌‌‌We want you to be able to try new activities and rely on old favourites. So we've scheduled a range of free sports, activities and classes on and around campus.
You can simply turn up to - no booking, no fee, no kit needed - just turn up in the right clothes and frame of mind! 

Students don't have all the fun, staff are welcome at any of these free sessions too. 

We've combined all the free activities we have offered under Active Campus and Active Lifestyles into one handy timetable for you to download. These free activities run from April 24th to May 28th, with some continuing over the summer. 

Don't know your Zumba from your Circuits? Check out our Fitness class descriptions.

You can now pre-book each week for yoga, boxercise, zumba and pilates classes. Visit the online shop for booking.
