The University has invested over £25M in the sports facilities we have on campus today. The University attracts some pretty high-level budding athletes to study here and hosts Morecambe FC from time to time too, so you can be sure you are using some of the best facilities and equipment available within the UK.
The Sports Centre has been a part of Lancaster University since the early development of the University campus, starting out as a sports hall based on main campus, where the Engineering building is today.
In 2011 our facilities were moved to our current, purpose-built Sports Centre, facilitating our 8.5m climbing wall, a multi-function Sports Hall and swimming pool. The building looks a little different today though, since moving here, we’ve built an extension to accommodate our professional strength and conditioning room and recently added a second sports hall, complete with movable spectator seating.
Recently, the fitness suite was upgraded with new equipment from Technogym. The upgrade included cutting edge treadmills, ski urgs, cross trainers, weights benches and much more. Take a look at the virtual tour to see inside our multi-floor gyms and conditioning facilities.
