We are open

We’re open and Free to all our University community until 25 October 2020!*

Additional measures put in place by the Government with regards to the local lockdown in the North East means we need to pause some of our indoor sports activity, including:

  • indoor AU Club sessions
  • Intramural Indoor sport
  • NUSU indoor introductory sports sessions
  • casual indoor sports bookings

These sessions will return as soon as we are allowed. In the meantime, you can still take part in our gym sessions and exercise class programme.

Please ensure you bring your smartcard when attending and familiarise yourself with some of the additional measures we have introduced to keep you safe.
