B:Active Residences

B:Active Residences is a programme of free healthy physical activity opportunities for all students living in University accommodation. With regular exercise classes and other sessions right on your doorstep, this will support you to move more, feel better and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.

  • 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.


In September 2017 we will be launching Residences Tennis. This programme will offer our students living in residences across the city the opportunity to:

  • Hire equipment for free
  • Join in weekly activity on courts across the city for free
  • Compete against other residences throughout the year, culminating in an end of year championship
