Join in!

You don’t need to be sporty or have tried the activities before. In fact, we’d be just as pleased to welcome you along if it’s something completely new!

Our varied programme offers lots of different sports, dance and activities at various times of the day and evening across both College Lane and de Havilland campuses, 7 days a week. We believe there’s something for everyone – from traditional sports you’ll be familiar with, through to more unusual activities to try out!

We know how daunting starting university can be – Each one of us has been in your shoes and our UH student Activators guarantee you a warm welcome. So many students tell us that Active Students was one of the best ways they made friends at uni, it’s also a great break from your studies and keeps you feeling great too.


What is Active Students?

Active Students is so much more than traditional sport. It’s a great way for you to meet new people and experience something for the first time, whilst having fun and staying healthy. All activities are free and you can turn up when you want – no sign up, no commitment, no cost.

So if you want a break from studying, want to see what’s going on around campus or want to meet some new people, then join us at a session.

The scheme is available to all University of Hertfordshire students and is totally free!
