DSDR is the university department which allocates and maintains the Sports Facilities. They also manage relationships with National Governing Bodies and provide some student clubs with coaching staff. The Sport Officer will regularly meet with DSDR representatives over the course of the year to try and further develop the sporting offer here and make sure that your views are being represented appropriately.

Sports Pass

Having a Sports Pass gives you access to all of the amazing facilities (excluding the gym) Bath has to offer free of charge. You’ve just got to activate your pass at the Sports Training Village reception and enjoy.

The Gym

At the university we have a fantastic gym welcoming all abilities; not only that but a brand new 2 floor extension has been built so there's even more room for everyone.

Gym passes are not included in the sports pass, however, are significantly subsidised for students and last all year.

The costs and purchase of a gym pass & Sports pass information can be found on the Team Bath website 

Exercise Classes and Personal Training

If you want to push yourself even further and really get into shape outside of a student sports club, Team Bath also offer student discounts on their exercise classes and personal training offers. Check out the below videos and Team Bath website for more information.


There is a scholarship scheme within the Sports Department that is able to help talented athletes who play sport at an exceptionally high level. For more information on these scholarships pages, check out the Sports Department scholarship pages.

The budget for Sport at The SU does not cover participation in national or international competitions - for example selection for an English Universities side or for The World University Games.

There is a funding pot held by the Sports Department, provided by the University Alumni Department, which elite athletes can bid to for to help with international events. For further details please email Katie Payne on klp53@bath.ac.uk.
