Welcome to the University of York’s recreational sport and physical activity programme

What is York Active

York Active is a three year Sport England funded programme that aims to increase sport and physical activity amongst students and staff at the University of York. We deliver a wide range of inclusive, fun sport sessions with no commitment to participation necessary. Our drop in sessions provide a non-competitive and relaxed environment whatever your ability.
