Students who want to keep fit without committing to a gym or sports club can now do so for FREE as part of DSU’s Campus330 initiative.
Campus330 is a casual turn up and play sports and fitness programme, aimed at breaking down social and economic barriers and allowing more access to sport and exercise for students at the university.
From tomorrow (November 27), students can take part in activities including – amongst others – indoor football, badminton, circuits and running, without having to pay a single penny!
The programme has been running since October, and over the last few weeks the sports office has been working on securing additional funding to make all Campus330 sessions free.
Jake Betts, Sport Development Co-ordinator for DSU, said: “We have had a fantastic 550 individual students get involved during the first six weeks of running Campus330.
“By securing funding to make all our sessions free, we are encouraging more students to access informal sport or fitness.”
Dan Winney, VP Student Activities, added: “We have listened to feedback from students, in which they suggested the cost could be a barrier for participation.
“By removing this barrier we are hopeful more students and staff will get involved and get active.”
