Pay as you go

As a student at Bristol, you can access most of our facilities on a pay as you go basis, including classes, swimming, the gym and courts, without the need for a membership.

Bursary Discounts

You can buy an active membership with additional discount if you have been awarded the University of Bristol Bursary.

You can purchase a membership at a discounted bursary rate once bursaries have been allocated, until 31 May.

The membership will then remain valid from the time of purchase until 31 August.

To find out more or buy your membership, email us at, including your student number.‌

Please note: We cannot activate your discounted membership until we have received confirmation of your eligibility from the Student Funding Office. You may purchase a membership at full price before then, and we can later refund the difference to your account, only when we have received confirmation of your bursary eligibility.
