Did you know we have a wide range of Pay as You Play options available for you to enjoy with friends and family this winter? All our sports have indoor options so you can play on, no matter what the weather is doing outside. 

Good Luck to our Students

Exams Good Luck

It is exam season again. Good luck to all students currently preparing for exams and submission deadlines. It can be a stressful time so remember to be kind to yourself, take regular study breaks and stay active to help you stay fresh and focussed. A short walk, run or workout can really help your physical and mental health during stressful times. Visit us for a well earned break, guest passes available if you haven't got your membership yet. Heriot-Watt Students can also access a range of wellbeing support through the university here.
