Membership & prices

You can use the facilities at the Centre for Sport & Exercise by paying a one-off 'pay as you play' fee (students, staff and guests only), or by taking out a membership.

Membership offers you an easy, value for money way of regularly exercising.

Members benefits from:

  • free access to all facilities at the Sports & Exercise Centre
  • discounted rates for facilities at the Sports Academy
  • discounted rates for Sports Active services

All members pay an additional fee for the use of astrodome, all pitches, coaching courses, inductions, fitness assessments and advisories.

If you exercise twice or more each week, then a membership will be a more cost effective method of payment for you than paying as you play.
