On Your Doorstep

If you are moving into University accommodation then you could be enjoying more than 35 hours of FREE sports and activities every week!


Sporticipate On Your Doorstep is aimed at newcomers to sport or those that want to exercise on a social level.

These drop-in sessions are available at venues close to your Halls of residence so you can play sport when you feel like it.

Supported Training

This is a new initiative to help provide a better experience for members of residential gyms. As part of the Sporticipate we want to offer lifestyle support within the residences.

Our aim is to ensure that healthy lifestyle advice is available to people living in halls. This is your chance to access expert coaches and trainers to help make best use of the facilities on your doorstep, whatever your experience or goals.

The programme aims to create a sense of community in the residential gyms by providing training guidance and monthly workout plans.

Personal trainers will be present in each of the residential gyms at the times detailed below.
