Whether you’re a first-timer or an aspiring professional athlete, sport and active wellbeing at Newcastle University is for everyone! No matter your skill level or experience, we're here to help you stay active and look after your physical and mental wellbeing.

We offer a range of bursaries, funds and provisions. This ensures all students can take part in our sport and active wellbeing activities.

Our Sport and Fitness Centre is conveniently located on campus. It's location number 70 on the campus map, just past the Ridley Building and Medical School. We also have purpose-built pitches, pavilions and centres at easy-to-access locations around Newcastle. We invested £30 million in our exceptional indoor and outdoor facilities. They come with state-of-the-art equipment and functional training spaces.

Immerse yourself in our inclusive sports community by taking part in group fitness classes. Try out our popular Give It A Go and Intramural Sport programmes. Or, play casually with friends by booking a court to play sports such as squash, badminton and basketball. Check out our Health & Wellbeing Hub for further resources to support your sport, health and fitness goals.
