Facilities at City University



CitySport, our brand new sports centre, is the largest student sports facility in central London. Fitted with the latest and most sophisticated fitness equipment across 3,000m2 of floor space, CitySport provides leading-edge sport and well-being facilities for our students at great value rates.

With 100 stations of gym equipment spread over two floors, including the latest consoles with tablet-style screens, internet access and device connectivity are available at the touch of a finger. Both gym floors are fitted with bespoke training rigs, designed to allow an almost limitless choice of body weight exercises. Facilities are the match of any high end gym in London. At the heart of the centre is the Saddlers Sports Hall, an elite Olympic-standard competition space adapted to Sport England standards and able to accommodate basketball, badminton, five-a-side football, volleyball, cricket, netball and other court sports. With bespoke seating for up to 400 spectators and separate team changing rooms, the Hall is a hub for City’s representational sports teams and social sport. For those that prefer group exercise, there are purpose-built studios for mind and body classes, indoor studio cycling, martial arts and student team sports.


Books, technology and dedicated staff are available to support you as you learn. The recently refurbished main University library occupies five floors in the Northampton Square building. In addition, there are specialist libraries for Cass Business School and The City Law School


New restaurant facilities have recently been introduced on the main campus- there is a choice of coffee and sandwich shops, deli and baguette bars and a food court, which provides a selection of hot and cold meals. The Students' Union also has a bar and café which are open to all students. Off campus, Islington and Clerkenwell have plenty of bars, restaurants and gastropubs to cater for all tastes.

Students’ Union

The Students' Union boasts a newly refurbished bar, which offers food and provides a fantastic venue. The Students' Union also runs a programme of competitive sport throughout the year- football, rugby, basketball and many other teams travel around the country to compete against other universities. Your Students' Union is here to help make your time at City University London fun and fulfilling. As well as organising social events, the Students' Union is actively involved in student politics and can give you support and advice.
