Whether you’re a beginner or an elite athlete, these state-of-the-art facilities will offer the opportunity to be part of sport at the University of Birmingham. 
 
360 Sport and Fitness will be home to the University’s 53 sports clubs. The centre includes all the facilities the clubs need to support their training including a High Performance Centre with a full time team of sport professionals including sport psychology, sports nutrition and physiology.
