This academic year hasn’t been like any other and your university sport and fitness experience is no exception! We know that being physically active is so important for both your physical and mental wellbeing, so we’ve tried to ensure that through lockdowns, facility closures and the suspension of in-person activities we were still able to support you through our online resources and apps.


We are pleased to let you know that, following the Government’s roadmap, the gym and outdoor facilities are both open and available for bookable sessions. To book a gym session or hire a facility, you will need to sign up to be a member of Royal Holloway Sport either through the sports pass or a fitness membership. 

The sports pass is free and offers you pay-as-you-go access to the gym, group exercise classes, Active sessions and facility hire*. You can sign up for a sports pass at here

There are also three fitness memberships available this term. A student fitness membership offers full access to bookable gym sessions and all group exercise classes. It also includes the sports pass offering pay-as-you-go access to Active sessions and facility hire as well as student group training*. All fitness memberships offer the same services and facilities but for different durations and prices. Please see the image below for more details:
