Joining a sports club?
We have over 40 brilliant sports clubs for you to join here at the University, from Fencing to Sailing, Netball to Canoe - some of which use the sports facilities on and off-campus. If your chosen club uses the facilities in the gym [such as sports halls, squash courts, or studios], tennis courts, swimming pool, or our riverside playing fields, you will need a Sport & Exercise or Sport membership to access these areas as well as matriculating for that club.


You'll need our app

Gym sessions, exercise classes, the swimming pool and the strength performance centre can be booked directly from your smartphone via the our App. You can also view up to date timetable information as well as useful news and information.


Once downloaded you will need to request a password reset which will be sent to the email we have for you on the system. This email has to match precisely and once reset you can book sessions up to three days in advance and cancel up to an hour before, so as to not incur a no-show fee. 

Direct debit

To set up a direct debit, please complete a membership form and direct debit mandate at ISE reception. There will be a small charge to pay, this covers your membership subscription until the first direct debit is taken from your account.

  • You need to have a UK bank account that is able to accept direct debit payments.
  • Payments are taken on the fifth (or next working day) of each month.
  • You must have the funds available in your account to make your payments. If you do not, you will still be liable to make payment by cash or card at ISE reception, you may also be charged by your bank for a direct debit default. Access to the Institute will not be permitted until payment is made.
  • If you default on your direct debit payment you will have until 15th of that month to make the outstanding payment to ISE reception. If payment is not received by the 15th your membership will be cancelled immediately and you won’t be able to sign up to future direct debit memberships, you will also be charged a £25 re-joining fee when signing up to any membership in future.
  • Your membership and payment will continue until your membership is cancelled.
  • Payments cannot be rolled over and collected in subsequent months.

You can pay by credit or debit card at ISE reception or on our Online Joining Portal.

Cancellation Period

There is a one month cancellation period for memberships paid by direct debit instalments. Please send an email to request cancellation of your membership.
