What is UNIversal Gym?

UNIversal Gym membership is a scheme where students and staff are able to use another university on the scheme's gym facilities free of charge!

The scheme allows you to purchase one membership and use it, for example, when visiting your hometown or when visiting a friend at their university.

The University of Bedfordshire are proud to partner with British Universities & Colleges Sport on the scheme for the 2019-2020 academic year.


*Eligible to staff and students who have purchased a 12 month gym or 12 month joint membership.

How to get involved

To be part of the UNIversal Gym scheme you need to purchase a 12 month membership from our SILVER or GOLD package for the current academic year and pick your card up from Luton or Bedford Aspire Gym receptions.
