    How to become a member

    If you would like to become a member, following lockdown, head to the main university reception where a customer service adviser will assist you in completing the necessary paperwork, take payment and book your induction.

    Inductions
    • All users must complete an induction before using the gym. They provide a great opportunity for you to meet the fitness team while they cover health and safety points, our code of conduct and give a brief overview of how to use our equipment.
    • You may attend group exercise classes prior to your induction.
    • For confident and experienced gym users a 30 minute express induction is available.
    • Those who feel they would benefit from more thorough demonstrations and explanations can book on to a full hour long induction.
