Movement, wellbeing, sport and physical activity have an incredible ability to reach into the places we live, reduce social isolation, and build a sense of pride and belonging.

Our activities provide a platform for people of different ages, cultures and backgrounds, who may otherwise never meet, to come together through a shared passion. This creates rising levels of social trust and a greater sense of belonging and community spirit within the University and beyond.

Our social sport programme gives you the chance to take part in sport in a fun and relaxed environment. With over 20 sessions each week, it is the perfect opportunity to try something new and keep active whilst at university.
