Fitness, sport and wellbeing at the University of Sussex.

Sussexsport is the University’s sports service. 

We manage the two on-campus gyms, group exercise classes and courses, sports halls, tennis courts and pitches - with a selection of great value memberships for University of Sussex students. 

We're passionate about getting everyone active. From all inclusive membership that includes the gym, classes and racket sports from as little as £10 a month, to relaxed social activities and competitive team sports, we have something for everyone.
