The Murray Edwards College gym is available for use every day from 6am-11pm.

Gym membership fees are £18 per term or £45.00 a year.

The gym is an unsupervised facility made available by the college for the use of students, fellows, staff and alumnae. The gym is self-funded by its membership fees and the equipment is serviced, maintained, repaired or replaced from these fees.

Term time membership runs from the start of University term to the day before the start of the following University term and annual memberships will start on the day your card is activated.

The gym is cleaned on Mondays and Thursday between 1.30pm and 2.30pm by the College House Porters, who are predominately male.

As it is an unsupervised facility an induction must be completed before your access card is activated.

Gym inductions

Inductions are scheduled at the beginning of each term and you are only required to complete one induction even if your membership lapses for a tem or two. There is a one off charge of £8 for inductions; this is for cost recovery only.

Inductions are carried out by Harry Veysey of Cam Sport Performance. Harry has over 10 years’ experience in delivering high quality strength and conditioning, exercise technique coaching and exercise programming. He has an in MSc Sports Performance, a BSc in Sports Studies and is a UKSCA accredited strength and conditioning coach. He also works with a number of the college sports teams and is open to enquiries from individuals or any of the teams here at Murray Edwards College who might be interested in working with him.

Throughout October we will be providing induction sessions that you will be able to book on to and attend. These sessions will include basic Health and Safety advice, a blood pressure test, and instruction on the safe use of the machine and will also include some exercise. We will add additional sessions should demand be sufficient.
