Active Students

Active Students is an organisation funded by Sport England, enabling all University of Hertfordshire and RVC students to take part in non-competitive, professionally run and FREE sports and leisure activities; from White Water Rafting to Zumba and Weightlifting.

All classes are run at the RVC Hawkshead campus in our new fully equipped gym, or at the University of Hertfordshire campus (you are welcome at both). All of our trainers and instructors hold professional qualifications, and due to the small class sizes at the RVC the instructors are often able to give one to one coaching at some point during most sessions.

As mentioned, all classes are completely FREE to staff and students, all you need to do is bring your RVC I.D. card so one of the activators can log your I.D. number.
Not only are the classes free, but each time you are logged at a session, you will receive points, and points do mean PRIZES! Points can be redeemed for water bottles, t-shirts and hoodies.

Once you have attended a class, you can log on to the active students website at anytime to review your progress and how close you are to a reward.

The class timetable changes each term, please look at the link on the left for fitness classes. If this is out of date, an up to date version can always be found at their website

Remember classes are free, fun, and obligation free, so turn up to whichever class, whenever and enjoy!
