Fitness, sport and wellbeing at the University of Sussex.

Facilities and membership

Our two sports facilities on campus give you the opportunity to have fun, stay healthy, make friends and get active with expert advice and support.

Use our fitness rooms, try out a group exercise class or hire one of our sports halls, courts or pitches on a pay-and-play basis, or become a Sussexsport member by signing up to one of our great value student memberships.

Club sport and Sports Scholarships

If you want to play sport competitively, we have a packed club sports programme that we run with the Students’ Union. 

And if you’re a talented student athlete, we offer holistic Sports Scholarships packages that provide a network of support and financial assistance to develop you as a sportsperson and student, with the opportunity for mentoring with world-class athletes.

Drop-in social sport

If you’re new to sport or want to try something different, check out our Active US social sport programme. We offer a range of weekly wellbeing activities during term time on and off-campus, designed to be low cost, inclusive and social!

You can even swim at local pools in Brighton & Hove, Lewes, Newhaven, Seaford and Ringmer with our £1 student swim offer.

US Girls Can

Our US Girls Can sessions provide female-focused sport and activity opportunities in a supportive, encouraging and non-judgemental space.

In addition to our year-round programme of sessions on campus, we also run campaign weeks with lots of one-off events. Join the US Girls Can community on Instagram and Facebook.

Therapy room

We also have a Therapy Room and Sports Injury Clinic offering discounted rates for students.
