Fitness, sport and wellbeing at the University of Sussex.

Sussexsport is the University’s sports service. 

We manage the two on-campus gyms, group fitness 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 Gold membership that includes peak-time gym use, classes and racket sports for less than £15 a month, to relaxed social activities and competitive team sports, we have something for everyone.

Facilities and membership

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

Sign up as a Sussexsport member with one of our great value student memberships and use our fitness rooms, take part in group fitness classes and book a range of racket sports courts. 

We have some amazing all inclusive student membership options, including our annual Gold membership that gives you anytime gym use, classes and racket sports for less than £15 a month.

If you need a bit more flexibility, you can buy an all inclusive three-month or one-month membership. Or, you pay-and-play per visit with our free Bronze membership, which gives you a discounted student rate across our facilities.

As a student, you can also get a discounted rate to hire our pitches and sports halls. Download our price list for more details on our pay-and-play options: Sussexsport Price List 2022 [PDF 89.26KB]
