Welcome to Sport at the University of Essex

Whether you like racquet sports, football or rugby or perhaps aerobics, free weights or climbing, there is an activity – indoors or outside - to suit you. 

Our showpiece Evolve gym at Colchester Campus features over 130 stations, and offers state-of-the-art fitness technology in light, spacious air-conditioned comfort. Having invested some 1.4 million in 2010, we are now home to one of the most advanced sports facilities in Essex. Our stunning fitness studios offer sprung wooden floors and air conditioning giving the best of environments for a vast range of classes from aerobics to yoga.

In July 2012, Evolve Southend opened at the University Square residencies to enable students at the Southend campus to enjoy the same high standard of equipment and service.

To see a short VR tour of some of the facilities available along with 360 degree tours of Colchester and Southend facilities, please visit the University's virtual tours library.
