Welcome to Sussex!

Welcome to all our new and returning students for the 2023-24 academic year.

On this page you can find all the information you may need about memberships, clubs, classes and events.

Check out our Welcome Week schedule to make the most of Freshers week with Sussexsport!

Welcome Week

Sussexsport and ActiveUs are running a week's worth of pop up stalls and drop in events to introduce our new students to sport and fitness at Sussex! Come and find us during Welcome Week to win prizes, find out everything you need to know about us and even meet new people through sport.

Check out the timetable here.

There's no need to book in advance and all equipment is provided!

Student Membership

Check out our student membership options here, starting from just £12.08 a month.

If you don't want to commit to a whole year's membership, we also offer 1 month and 4 month membership options.

Buy your membership within the first month of term to be entered into our prize draw! Keep an eye out for details on our Instagram page.

Current students and staff can buy their membership by using their University of Sussex ID (e.g. ab123) and your normal password 

Active Us

Active US is our social sports programme - designed for students, by students. 

Take part in casual social sessions, join our development groups or have some friendly competition in our weekly leagues; whatever you choose there's plenty of opportunity to play and progress.

Our fun social sessions cost just £2 - with no commitment, no membership and no experience needed.

Get to know Active Us during Welcome Week at one of our activities! Check out the timetable here.
