Based within the Faculty of Science, the new Sports Complex is the second phase in our Sports Science Avenue, which also includes our new Health Sciences Building. 

The aim is to integrate health sciences, sports sciences and the overall wellbeing of our students, and create a hub of sports activity and research on campus. 


There are no monthly fees - a single yearly registration fee of £25 is all that is required and then the gym facilities, courts and fitness classes are all free for you to use!

How to join

All Liverpool Hope University students and staff can join the gym. You pay a yearly £25 registration fee, and then access is free for the year. Memberships will be valid from your induction date and will expire on the 31st August each year, after which a new registration will need to be taken out.
