The venue

Plymouth Marjon University

Plymouth Marjon University is ranked 4th best university in the UK for sports facilities by Times Higher Education (THE). All delegates will enjoy access to first rate facilities at Plymouth Marjon University including a world class University Sports Centre, which regularly hosts Olympic athletes and professional sports teams. We practice 'exercise as medicine' and offer a number of on-site health clinics, sport science laboratories and a sports therapy clinic. 

On our green and self-contained campus and it takes just minutes to walk between the sports centre, lecture theatres, teaching rooms, dining facilities and accommodation. We've really got all you need right here.
