New Health and Wellbeing Suite opens at University of Nottingham


May 30th, 2019

Staff and students are invited to book a free taster session at the brand new Health and Wellbeing Suite at the David Ross Sports Village on University Park campus.

A key addition to health and wellbeing facilities available for the University community, the new Suite sits within the existing 25m swimming pool complex. The area offers the perfect environment to unwind with a Finnish sauna, steam room, arctic ice fountain and ice–cold bucket showers and will be open to UoN Sport and Fitness members from the end of May.

The Suite is the latest in a range of projects from University of Nottingham Sport focussing on wellbeing and responding to the changing landscape of the health and fitness sector.

Key developments include the addition of several new Mind and Body classes to the popular group exercise programme across all three campus sports centres, reflecting the increased demand for sessions that focus on reducing physical and mental tension as well as burning off calories. New classes include a wider range of Yoga disciplines as well as an extended Pilates offer. New campaign Men’s Health Active builds on the success of the Girls’ Night In project to offer students new forums to stay active and take care of their wellbeing.

Also based at David Ross Sports Village, the Sports Injury Clinic offers a range of treatments including physiotherapy, massage and hydro pool based therapies with members offered preferential rates.

Director of Sport Dan Tilley commented;

“Recent research and insight in the health sector has really highlighted how important not just physical, but mental health is to our overall wellbeing. It’s really important for University of Nottingham Sport to invest in facilities that meet the needs of our community and this facility allows us to grow and diversify our offer.”

“The new Health and Wellbeing Suite is a fantastic addition to the state-of-the-art facilities at David Ross Sports Village and we’re delighted to officially open it to our UoN Sport and fitness members.”

Free taster sessions are available between Monday 3rd June – Sunday 9th June for the first two hours of each day and between 5pm-7pm.
