We have what many consider to be the best college gym at the University. Located in the basement of the Abraham building on the main College site, it is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The gym is equipped with a variety of cardiovascular and weight machines and has an excellent selection of free weights and high-quality weightlifting equipment. There are also kettlebells, punch and kick bags, mats, and other fitness equipment available.

Hygiene Best Practice

Hand sanitising stations and equipment cleaning products can be found within the gym, so please ensure you keep the machines clean after each use. We ask that you hand sanitise when entering and leaving the gym as well as throughout your gym session.  
Machines have been spread out in order to keep a safe distance between users, so please do not move them.

Please note that the gym will not be available for general use on Saturdays mornings from 9am until 1pm and Wednesday evenings from 7pm until 11pm as it is reserved for the Linacre Ladies that Lift. Please refer to the gym timetable for other classes that are available in the gym.
