Online booking and memberships

ARU students and staff

All students and staff at Anglia Ruskin University already have an online booking account that can be used to book onto fitness classes, campus sport sessions, or sport club sessions.

To book, you will need your ARU email address and online booking account password (this is not the same as your ARU IT password). If you do not know your password, you can request a new password to be sent to your ARU email address.
