Active Residences: Opening doors to activity

A programme of free healthy physical activity opportunities for all students living in University accommodation, with hubs in Stoke Bishop, City Centre and Clifton.

Supporting you to move more, feel better and enjoy a healthy living experience.

Combining a regular timetable of exercise sessions, physical activity promotions and social sporting opportunities, you will be able to get involved in a fun, flexible and convenient programme of activities and taster sessions on your doorstep.

  • Group exercise classes from yoga to Bollywood dance, body combat to pilates, you can find a class to suit you. 
  • Coached activities such as running and tennis, try something new or brush up on your skills.
  • Instructor support to help you make the most of the onsite gyms in the Stoke Bishop hub.


There are a range of activities scheduled at each hub site, each colour coded to make finding a class in your area easier. In response to your feedback, we are constantly developing the programme over the year, with new activities added and new locations offered where possible. If you are resident in University accommodation you can access activity in any location - so choose something that suits your interests and schedule.
