For your Salt Ayre induction, you will be required to present your University card; once your induction has been completed you will be issued a Salt Ayre Membership Card, which you will need to display each time you use the Salt Ayre Sports Centre facilities.

Salt Ayre Sports Centre is easily accessible by car, bicycle and public transport.
