About Us




We are Northumbria Sport, the sport and activity arm of Northumbria University.


We cater for all, from beginners looking to try a new sport to student athletes seeking a competitive edge. We also have an award winning volunteer and internship programme plus a new Social Sport and Activity programme.


Sport Central, right in Newcastle city centre Northumbria University city campus, is our hub. There are many things you can do in our £30 million sports facility.



Our fitness membership is open to students, staff, alumni and the general public. It's more than you usual gym membership. Included in the price you get access to the fully refurbished gym, 25m pool, exercise classes, health assessments and guidance from our Personal Trainers, who are always there to offer advice whenever you need it.
