Free access to new Sport building

After two years of construction we are excited to announce the £10 million Stevenson Building Extension will open on Wednesday 28th October.

To celebrate our opening we are offering a week of free access to all University of Glasgow students and staff.

Free access runs from Saturday 31 October until Friday 06 November 2015. To access facilities you must register your details at reception.

We encourage you to visit the facilities during this time to see and try our new LifeFitness cardio equipment, Matrix Fitness, Eleiko, and ESP strength conditioning equipment and our new Sports Hall. We will have staff on site to demonstrate how to use the equipment and to help you get started and make the most of our new equipment.

You can also access all our exercise classes and swimming pool during this time.

Anyone who takes out membership between Wednesday 28 October and Wednesday 11 November will automatically be entered in a prize draw to win some exclusive prizes including:

  • gift card
  • Limited edition University of Glasgow Sport Nike sportswear
  • 1-2-1 Personal Training Sessions

We look forward to welcoming you.

Best regards

University of Glasgow Sport

GUSA Buddy System

Do you feel you are experiencing a barrier when it comes to sport and exercise? Do you feel uncomfortable taking part in classes alone?

The GUSA Buddy System gives you an opportunity to overcome whatever your concerns may be and help you take that step towards becoming physically active.

The Buddy System was set up a couple of years ago to encourage people who may not be comfortable taking part in sport and physical activity alone, to do so with the help of a buddy. Sport and exercise is a huge part of many students’ lives, but there are those who may not be involved as others. By taking part in the Buddy System we would be able to provide 4 weeks access to the facilities whilst with your Buddy.
