Non-student payment

Staff and their family, alumni, retired staff, aged 60+ and the community can pay the annual membership in full or via a monthly rolling membership paid through recurring card payments. 

If you would prefer to pay monthly, please visit the Centre for Sport reception to set up your recurring card payment or to pay through your UWE Bristol salary.

Student Active Card renewal

If you hold a 12-month student membership, you can save on the cost of your Active Card for the next academic year. Renew before your membership runs out and you can save £65 by renewing for £150 rather than the usual £215. Contact reception to renew.

Criteria for alumni membership

You must have completed a course or programme at UWE Bristol to qualify for alumni membership. You'll be required to bring in a UWE Bristol alumni card or confirmation email from the Alumni Office as proof.

British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) UNIversal

If you have an Active Card membership at UWE Bristol Sport you get access to the exclusive BUCS UNIversal scheme. So if you head home for the holidays or are visiting friends at other universities you may be able to access the gym at the local university.

Find out which other universities are participating and contact the Centre for Sport reception for further details and to get your BUCS UNIversal card. You may need to complete documentation and an induction at the participating venue.
