Our new hub 'tops out'

Sports & Wellness Hub

The development of our new Sport and Wellness Hub recently celebrated the construction reaching its highest point.

On Tuesday 30 January, staff and students gathered at the site of the new Sport and Wellness Hub for a or a 'topping out' ceremony – a celebration of the construction reaching its highest point.


"An outstanding experience for all"

Registrar Rachel Sandby-Thomas was joined by representatives from Warwick Sport, the Students’ Union and some of our sports societies for the event, who all spoke about what the development meant to them.

“We all know that being healthy makes us learn better, be more resilient and productive, plus happier. So it’s great to see the new Sport and Wellness Hub going up.

It will act as a testament to the University’s commitment to this, help our campus be the most active in the UK and provide a top-class facility for students, employees and our local community alike.”

- Rachel Sandby-Thomas, Registrar

“The Hub will mark a major step towards seeing the University of Warwick achieve its ambition to have the most active campus community in the UK.

The building will house some top quality facilities, and will give all of its users the opportunity to be active in their own unique way. It will become a destination facility for our students, staff and local community, delivering an outstanding experience for all.”

- Lisa Dodd-Mayne, Director for Sport and Active Community

There was also a display from the Warwick Devils cheerleading and gymnastic society, and a performance from members of our student Big Band.
