Support and Inclusion

At Trinity Sport, we believe sport and physical activity is for everyone. We work alongside the Students Union, Disability Service and Student Counselling Service to ensure there are accessible sport and exercise opportunities for all students. We also have our own Sport & Physical activity Inclusion Officer to help and support you on your sport and fitness journey, so please do not hesitate to get in touch.



We have many supports in place to support students with disabilities and students who require specific accommodations when engaging in sport and exercise. A full overview of our sports facilities can be found here.

An overview of our accessibility features include:

Trinity Sport values and supports individuals with diverse genders, sexes and sexualities participating in sport. When registering for a sports club you may sign up using your preferred gender and pronoun.

We work closely alongside Sporting Pride and highly recommend keeping up to date with their events. 

Mental Health


Mind Body Boost (MBB) is an Erasmus+ funded project designed to encourage inclusivity and equality through sport. Devised to help university students managing mental and physical health issues combined with low interaction with physical activity, the MBB project aims to address these issues through social/behavioural activation, combining mental and physical interventions, in a collaborative and self-supportive delivery model. 

The programme runs once a week for 6 weeks with 45 minutes of wellbeing support and 45 minutes of physical activity per session. These sessions vary each week, focusing on a different area of wellbeing including stress, mindfulness, PMR and guided meditation. 
The programme is run collaboratively between Trinity Sport and the Student Counselling Services, drawing on experts in the field of mental health and physical activity to provide a supportive and inclusive environment. 
Start date and registeration to be announced soon.

There are a number of factors such as injuries, incidents or experiences in your personal life that can impact your sport and physical activity experience.

There are a number of supports available within Trinity if you are experiencing poor mental health and we urge you to contact one of the brilliant services listed below.
