Sports centre

The Life Centre promises to be one of the country's leading centres of sporting excellence and includes facilities such as family leisure pool with flumes, innovative climbing zone, eight-lane indoor bowls rink, 10-land swimming pool, diving pool with moveable floor and relaxing oasis with sauna, steam rooms and shower.  As a partner, Plymouth University has secured exclusive use of some of the top class facilities within the Life Centre as well as membership discounts for all Plymouth University students.

Water sports

Throughout the academic year, the Mount Batten Centre provides the operational base for the Students' Union water sports clubs and the University-led twice weekly recreational sailing and power boating sessions.  The centre offers an abundance of activities, from half-day sessions to complete training courses and a full selection of RYA sailing, power boating and windsurfing courses are offered, from beginner to advance.  Please book a space at the Recreation stand in Portland Square. Tour times will be confirmed on the day, so book as soon as you arrive.

City tours

Why not take a 45-minute guided bus tour around the bustling city, complete with running commentary on what Plymouth has to offer? See the modern city centre and pedestrianised shopping area only 1 minute's walk from our campus, and pick out restaurants, bars and entertainment to suit every taste and pocket.  Explore the historical yet vibrant Barbican, and also see how close the campus is to the Hoe, Plymouth's waterfront.  There is no need to sign up, just turn up at the bus stop outside the City Museum and Library.
