BeActive

Social Activity at King's

BeActive is the social and recreational activity programme available to all students and staff at King’s College London.

Across our staff and student timetables, we offer over 80 activities every week to ensure that there is something out there for you.

No commitment is needed, so it’s up to you if you want to try a different activity each week or become a regular to your favourite session. All activities are non-competitive and inclusive, so everyone can participate regardless of experience or ability.

 

Book your BeActive sessions

 

With the challenges that we’re facing in 2020 we want to ensure the King’s Community that BeActive will continue to be available and inclusive. We’ve made some changes both to the programme and the membership for Term 1 to ensure the whole Kings community can continuing enjoying the programme. 

The programme will include an extensive online timetable so if you’re not able to come to campus as much you can still stay active and meet new people. We’ll also be utilising a lot for our outdoor spaces at halls of residences and campuses to ensure our popular classes are still available at full capacity.

FAQs

Absolutely no problem. BeActive sessions are geared towards trying sports non-competitively, regardless of your level of experience or fitness. However with swimming there is no coach present, and you must be able to swim competently as this is just a drop in swim session.

To see for yourself, just come along to the next session and get involved.
