Disability support

Students with a disability can apply for a £500 bursary and get 1-2-1 supervision with a fitness instructor.

Sussexsport offer up to six bursaries of £500 each year to provide students with a disability access to our fitness rooms and 1-2-1 supervision with a qualified fitness instructor. This is supported by the Sussex Fund and the University of Sussex Alumni Team and via the Disability Support Team. The bursary is there to provide support to individuals whom without that 1:1 support wouldn't be able to use the facilities or the fitness spaces safely.

If you are interested in this support, please contact the Disability Advice Team here: Disability support : University of Sussex : University of Sussex. If you are interested in receiving a bursary please make this clear in the comment box on the registration form.

Once you are registered with the disability support team, you will meet with a member of Sussexsport to discuss your individual needs, requirements and interests. Potential areas of discussion beyond 1:1 support can also include:

You can use the website AccessAble to find out how to access our buildings if, for instance, you are using a wheelchair or walking aid. Access information for the Sport Centre and Falmer Sports Complex is available from their site, but please contact us with any queries you may have.
