UoM Sport


The Armitage Sports Centre offers a variety of membership options allowing access to our state of the art fitness facilities, equipped with a large selection of modern free weights, resistance and cardio equipment.

Online Membership System

The online membership system can be used to create a member profile, purchase or renew memberships, and keep personal details updated.

UoM Students and Staff must register with their UoM ID card in order to obtain the relevant discount; members of the public may register by entering their personal details. Once a membership has been purchased online it can be activated by visiting the Armitage Sports Centre reception desk with a UoM ID card (if applicable) or other identification.

Students from other institutions and UoM Alumni are welcome to benefit from student and staff prices respectively, however the online membership system will unfortunately be unable to verify the status of new members. To purchase a discounted membership please visit the Armitage Sports Centre reception with proof of your student or alumni status in order for the relevant discount to be applied to your profile.
