The Spa

The Spa is open to the public, students and staff and offers a range of beauty treatments, hairdressing, massage and sport therapy services at reduced prices.

Located in Newhall Street, The Spa is based at Richmond House, one of the University’s three city centre locations.

The Spa is equipped to a high commercial standard. There are three modern hairdressing salons, offering cut and blow drys, colour correction and much more, as well as three beauty suites, all professionally run by our highly trained staff and students.

For ultimate relaxation, The Spa has a steam room, sauna, spa pool and a dry flotation room, as well as changing rooms and shower facilities.

Beauty treatments range from a basic manicure to make-up application, hot stone massage and spa body wraps.

In addition to the spa facilities, sports therapy students offer a selection of specialist treatments in clinic sessions, including pre-event and remedial massage, injury treatment and rehabilitation programmes. Find out more information about our sports therapy clinics.

Students conducting the treatments are trained to the highest professional standards and will make sure that your visit to The Spa is an enjoyable experience. 

Please note, as our students are training, some treatments may take a little longer to carry out and your patience is appreciated. We ask you to sit back, relax and enjoy your time with us.

Opening hours vary to fit in with student timetables. However, The Spa is generally open Monday to Friday during term time (September to June).
