Applications Are Closed

Applications for the Sport Access Fund are now closed.

Accessing sport and physical activity whilst at university is not only a key part of your University experience, but also crucial for physical and mental wellbeing. We know that many students are struggling financially because of the Cost of Living Crisis, so the Guild and UB Sport have introduced a Sport Access Fund to help out.
