At UoC Active the health of our students is very important to us. We have two outstanding sports complexes at Carlisle and Lancaster. We have also partnered with Salt Ayre Sports Centre and Better Leisure to bring you unrivaled access to facilities across Lancaster, Carlisle and West Cumbria through our UoC Sport Card packages.

We also have a wide range of sports courses for you to choose from, with lecturers who are passionate about their subjects and eager to share their expertise with you. For more information on what courses we can offer you, go to UoC Active sports courses.

Sports facilities

All of our students in Lancaster and Carlisle have access to University of Cumbria sports facilities which are run by Register of Exercise Professionals accredited staff. Our sports and fitness centres contain all the equipment you need to keep in shape while you study. Both campuses have an air-conditioned fitness suite and a large, multi-purpose sports hall. Students at Lancaster have the added bonus of a specialist gymnastics area and an astroturf pitch. A range of exercise classes are also offered including boot camp, step, aerobics, pilates and more.

Students' Union

The University of Cumbria Students' Union (UCSU) has a variety of student teams and societies, run by students, for students to join and participate in. These provide a great opportunity for students with similar interests to meet with each other, make new friends, or to compete nationally in British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS), so you can continue a passion or maybe try something new.
