Welcome to new and returning students. Here is information on Sport Brighton services for 2020/21. We offer services to keep you active, play sport and a chance to socialise. Whilst this academic year may be a little different due to the current pandemic we are working hard to ensure you can access our services as safely as possible and within the industry and government guidelines. The nature of the situation means that our most up to date information can be found on our website and social media channels. Be sure to follow us online to keep up to date. Check out the video above for an overview of our services.
The university has three gym locations. Initially we will have open our Eastbourne and Falmer gyms from the start of term. We offer a great rate for gym access for students. Just £13.50 per month with a £21 joining fee (cancel at any time). Alternatively you can sign up for an academic year membership for £140 that will give you membership valid until the 30th June 2021. Our membership package include inclusive gym access, classes and swim access during set times (Sport Brighton pool in Eastbourne and Virgin Active in Falmer). Our Moulsecoomb gym is currently closed due to its size and the current pandemic, once open then you will be able to access this facility too with your membership. In the event of government guidelines changing and we are unable to offer services at your chosen centre your membership will be frozen / direct debit members will not be charged.

As students you can access our class programme on a pay as you go basis. Non-member students can book using their university login details on our website. You can also book badminton courts, table tennis, basketball rings and other sports areas for a low rate. Contact our sports centres for details. All the above can be booked up to 48 hours in advance. If you are a member you can book classes and facilities 7 days in advance.
STUDENT CLUBS & SPORTS ACTIVITIES
The university offers 31 sports in its student club programme. Student clubs are led by students with the support of Sport Brighton. Clubs range from just giving things a go to competitive opportunities. The University of Brighton clubs go under the name of the Brighton Panthers. Check out our club page for details of these. New this year is an exciting partnership with Nike. The University of Brighton is just one of two universities to work with the global sports brand. Our new clothing range will be online shortly so you can access all your Brighton Panthers Nike apparel.
As well as the student club programme we also offer a recreational sports programme called Parklife. This offers turn up and play low cost sports sessions. Details of the term one programme will be announced shortly.
Sport Brighton also offers a range of performance sport services. Some of our clubs are classed as performance sports, these receive specialist coaching and strength and conditioning support. Furthermore we have a scholarship programme that offers mentor support, facility access, funding and other supplementary services. If you compete at a representative level (National) then get in touch via our performance pages.
