Sports Facilities

  • Training facilities are provided by the University Facilities Management team, specifically the staff responsible for Sports and Recreation.
  • Weekly training times are set over the summer for the upcoming year, with the Student Activities staff liaising with the University Sports & Recreation team to confirm the times.
  • Student groups who have core objectives that involve routine training in physical activity are eligible for training time in the facilities, and a standard slot of 2 hours will be allocated free of cost in a suitable venue.
  • In some circumstances, usually based around the size of the membership of the group, longer or multiple training times may be allocated, which will be agreed by the Student Activities staff and University Sports & Recreation Team.
  • Extra time in the facilities may be available but will be charged at the student rate of hire, and all bookings must be confirmed by the Student Activities staff.
  • If use of the sports facilities is not part of a group’s core activities, they may be able to book the facilities but all bookings will be at the discretion of the University Sports & Recreation team, must be confirmed by the Student Activities staff, and will be charged at the student rate of hire.
