The Urban Active Project is funded through the National Lottery from Sport England and other partners.

We offer, you the student the chance to take part in one of three ways; you can borrow equipment and make use of open space either at the university or beyond, join in weekly sessions on campus or at your halls of residence or try out a new sport at one of the themed events taking place either on campus, at the beach or at one of the sports venues.

Rachael Smales is the Urban Active Programme Coordinator. She said: “With the help of the Student Activators and volunteers I believe we have created an exciting, fun and innovative programme of activities and events that are centred around the students and gets them active.”

The project offers fun, social and engaging activities for students on and off campus in a number of different ways through the FLEXI, CLUB SOCIAL and EVENTS programmes.
