Active US


All of our sessions are drop-in, with no sign-up or membership required! You can find our timetable at the bottom of the page, so check it out and see what you want to come along to!



Our objective at Active US is to be as accesible as possible. Therefore, there's no subscriptions and no sign-up fees. All of our sessions are pay-as-you-go from £1 to completely free!


Active US is designed for everyone, from complete beginners to experienced players, to have the opportunity to join in and try new activities. It doesn't matter what level you're at, come along and have a go!


It couldn't be easier to get involved with Active US sessions - just turn up by yourself or with your friends and get stuck in!


Active US is all about getting students active and making sure that they get the most out of their time at university. We have over 20 weekly sessions that you can get involved in, such as Running, Cricket, Ultimate frisbee, Trampolining or Bouldering. Likewise, you can get involved through our one-off events such as Zorball. Holi Run and the Freshers Dodgeball tournament! Active US is a partnership between the University of Sussex and the Students' Union and all of our sessions are run bu student Activators. To see what's on, check out our timetable below or you can pick up a copy of the weekly timetable in the Sport Centre or Falmer Sports Complex on campus!

Active US has also collaborated with the Students' Union Buddy Scheme to create Active Buddies. These are weekly sessions and one-off events that are exclusively open to Buddy Scheme members. You can find out more information about Active Buddies and view the timetable here. If you're interested in joining the Buddy Scheme then head over to the Buddy Scheme website.




Welcome to Active US!

As a student, you are able to take part in any of our Active US sessions - casual, non-competitive activity, perfect for trying something new - or just enjoying yourself and meeting new people! Each session is run by a student Activator, who are always happy to help - you can find a full list of them on our website :D

Sessions are either £1, £2.50 (Bouldering session only) or entirely free!
