Recreational Sport

If competitive sport isn’t your thing, there are plenty of fun recreational sport and fitness opportunities that students can get involved with whilst studying at DMU. Recreational sport is a fantastic way to look after your wellbeing, help you to stay healthy, provides an opportunity to meet new people or try a new activity. There really is something for all students!

DMUactive – free daily sport and fitness sessions

Lockdown update

In line with the Government’s announcement on the travel window for students, DMUactive will not be returning to face to face activity when lockdown lifts. We anticipate recommencing face to face activity in the new year from 11th January 2021. We will make a further announcement on Thursday 7th January as to what the Term 2 offer will be.

In the meantime, we want to continue to help the DMU community to stay active and look after their wellbeing so have developed a virtual offer that is open to all DMU staff and students. You can take a look at what is on offer on the DMUactive page.
