Get Active

The Get Active Programme – social sport for everyone! (Continues September 2017)

Get Active is an opportunity for students and staff to enjoy a variety of social sport sessions during the Academic Year.

Organised and run by Team Hud Activators, each session will be tailored to the ability and desires of the participants.

An amazing place to not only enjoy social sport at the university but also a great way to stay active with like-minded people.

At £1.00 per session, there is no excuse not to be active whilst studying. All you need to do is come along to the Team Hud Reception in Student Central, Level 3.
