Sport and Exercise Science Facilities

£32 million has been invested to significantly enhance indoor and outdoor sports facilities across the University. This includes major development of the existing sports centre located right next door to the Medical School, opening in September 2019.

This building is designed to provide space for performance and recreational sport plus the academic space for sports research and teaching.  The 5,962 square-metre building will house the sport and exercise science laboratories plus a multitude of sports facilities within the building including an eight-court sports hall, four squash courts, strength and conditioning gym, spin studio and gym.

There are also excellent facilities in the Faculty and University.
