Find where you belong, whether it’s representing the university in a sports team, making new friends on the playing field, turning pro or just trying an activity for the first time. Our mission is to offer everybody the opportunity to join in and to get active, regardless of ability.

Healthy bodies power healthy minds and getting involved in physical activity will really lift your student experience.

So whatever your goal...

Welcome to the Squad!​​​​​


You don’t need to be sporty or have tried our 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, games, and activities at various times of the day and evening across both 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!

Club Sport

If you have a passion for sport and want to participate, compete and/or represent UH in a wide variety of sports, Club Sport is for you! It offers a wide range of opportunities to get involved in sport on or off campus, develop personal skills, celebrate sporting achievements and a chance to develop friendships for life.

Gym and Fitness

Gym and fitness memberships to suit every pocket!  Two perfectly located gyms; one at College Lane that’s 24 hours and exclusively for student and staff use, the other being the main site at de Hav.  Our memberships provide flexibility, variety and added value.  And with our online platforms you can truly train whenever, however and with whoever you want to!


Working with the Student Wellbeing team, our Wellbeing Activators work with students who need a bit of extra help at a peer level. These confidential one-to-one sessions aim to use the power of physical activity to improve student mental health.


Our events happen regularly during most months of the academic year! They are completely free and open to all UH students, regardless of age or ability. They are your chance to meet new people, socialise and experience or try something completely new. From Colour Run to UV Sports Festivals, our HertSquad Events are the place to be!
