College Facilities


Access to the College Gym is available to all students following an induction on the use of the equipment. The gym contains treadmills, cross trainers, rowing machines, a variety of resistance machines and a new range of weights split across two rooms. The gym is run by the JCR and membership is priced at a very reasonable £20 for the year. For health and safety reasons you must be accompanied at all times when using the facilities. To gain access to the gym when it is locked, two people will need to show and leave their gym cards at Reception.

Sports Court

The sports court is free to use and located behind Williamson building. You can book the sports court out at Reception and check availability. Providing the Tennis and Netball clubs don’t have training or matches, you can use the court at anytime.


The recently refurbished bar is located in basement of East Wing of the Fergusson building. It usually opens 20:00 every night and usually closes at 23:00 except for Fridays and Saturdays when it stays open until midnight. Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are very reasonable priced. Throughout the year the bar hosts quiz nights, live lounges and karaoke, which always prove very popular! Whether you are looking to start your evening or just looking for a quiet pint and a chat, the bar is a great place to meet people.
