Booking a session
To attend a DMUactive session, you must book on in advance using either the DMU Leisure app or DMU Leisure online booking system. This allows us to manage the number of people attending a session to ensure everyone present has a great experience throughout the session.
Before attending your first session, you'll need to activate your account. See the step by step instructions on how to do this and how to book on to sessions.
DMUactive also offers a range of free events that any student at DMU can get involved with during the academic year. These events are a great way to meet new people or try something new with existing friends. From glow in the dark sports to charity events, we make sure that being active at DMU is exciting and unique!
