BUCS UNIversal Gym Membership

BUCS UNIversal Gym Membership

University of Lincoln is pleased to partner with British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) on the UNIversal Gym Card scheme.

This programme allows our student and staff University of Lincoln fitness members* to access fitness facilities at several different university venues across the UK, completely free-of-charge. Ideal for during university holidays when you return home or even visiting a friend, it’s the perfect way to keep up your routine even when you’re out of town.

We’re also welcoming UNIversal Gym card holders from other institutions taking part in the scheme to our fitness venues.
