Healthy Halls

The Healthy Halls scheme provides activities, workshops and events for students in University residences aimed at improving their health and increasing their awareness of wellbeing.

Activities are either free or are heavily subsidised and take place across the residences. You don’t have to live in the residence where the event is being held in order to take part.


If the University life is getting too much then take advantage of the Free Yoga session on campus.

Sessions will run for 1 hour and give you the chance to unwind while improving your strength and flexibility.

Suitable for beginners to intermediate participants.

Mats and blocks are provided, all you need to do is bring yourself and be dressed appropriately for the activity.

Monday 12:30 - 13:30 Birks Grange
Thursday 17:00 - 18:00 Northfield House
Friday 12:30 - 13:30 Birks Grange

To book your place please contact Paul Mouland on 01392 722039.

Total Body Conditioning

In the Total Body Conditioning class you’ll be using only your body weight to sculpt strong muscles in your upper body, lower body, and core.

The combination of plyometrics, agility, and pure cardio will make you work every muscle group, so prepare to get your heart racing and sweat pouring!

Total Body Conditioning is a great workout for everyone, and plenty of options are available for all fitness levels.

Fitness Trees

Brand new fitness equipment has been installed to help colleagues and students get active on campus. Clusters of Fitness Trees have been set up at Lafrowda and Birks Grange Village to provide users with outdoor exercise rigs that can host more than 100 different exercises.

Each tree supports a set of bars, positioned at differing heights to allow activities such as tricep dips, pull-ups and inclined press-ups.

River Bike Ride

Fancy exploring the Exe estuary by bike and possibly stopping off for the odd refreshment on the way?

We’ll be hiring bikes and leading a ride down the Exe estuary towards Powderham castle.

Its one of the most beautiful, flat and safe rides in Devon and it’s on your door step.

If you want to take in the sights of the Exe then contact Paul Mouland on 01392 722039.
