Our sport and exercise science facilities are based nearby to our Hendon campus in Allianz Park, offering staff and students unique access to academy and elite players and coaches.
We have a physiology laboratory with a large Woodway treadmill for measuring VO2 max, several exercise bikes and one of very few DXA scanning body composition machines in a UK university sport science department.
In our large biomechanics room, we recently set up the UK's most advanced 3D motion analysis equipment for sport science, which has real world applications including, for instance, how scientists can analyse the way athletes, the armed forces or the elderly move.
Our strength training room features professional-level equipment for all types of lifts, and we have a rehabilitation and soft tissue massage room, where students can gain practical experience and Middlesex athletes can receive free treatment.
The computer lab at Allianz Park is used regularly by our students and in particular by our sport psychology students.
Our collaboration with Saracens, as well as partnerships with other sporting institutions like the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, provide placement opportunities for students.
