Work on our new Sport and Wellness Hub has now started.
We aim to have the most physically active campus community in the UK by 2020, offering the world-class sporting experience you'd expect of a world-class University. That's why we're investing in a new Sport and Wellness Hub on campus and in the improvement of our existing sports facilities.
These new developments come in the form of a “hub and spokes” model. The new Sports facility will be the main centre for sporting activity on campus, with our developed and enhanced existing facilities connected to it as “spokes”.
Located off Leighfield Road, this new facility will offer a new sports hall, a flexible swimming pool, fitness suites, climbing and bouldering walls, squash courts, flexible studio spaces, a welcoming café and outdoor 3G sports pitches and netball courts.
Our plans for this new Sport Hub are a part of our wider strategy to encourage a healthy University life and to bring world-class facilities to our international campus. Once complete, it will be available to our students, our staff and the general public.
- Offers a top quality sporting experience for our students, staff and local community.
- Embeds the principles of an active landscape in the University master plan.
- Will be both operationally and environmentally sustainable.
