Sports facilities

Members of the general public can get access to our gyms and classes, as well as our range of other sports and fitness facilities and activities.

Our services also include fitness assessments, one-to-one personal training and exercise programmes without the astronomical joining fees and attitude you can find at other city-central gyms.

When you enrol at the University, you automatically become a member of the University of Westminster Students’ Union (UWSU) - an independent organisation that is run by students, for students.

The Students' Union is there to represent your needs as a student, protect your rights and make sure your voice is heard when key decisions are made at the University.
