How old do you have to be to use the climbing wall?

All climbers under 18 years have to be supervised by an experienced climber at all times. If you are over 18 and a competent climber you can use the wall within normal opening times. Normally, when the facility is open, we have climbing sessions each week on Thursday evenings and Friday afternoons.

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.

We would love to welcome you to our climbing wall but unfortunately the climbing wall is currently out of use due to the COVID-19 situation.

For more information about our activities, please visit our sport and wellness page. Alternatively, you can contact us on 01204 903 172 or by emailing

Sport is a great way to engage with new friends.

We are proud of our work on-campus to ensure our students can enjoy #UniAsItShouldBe, COVID-secure.
