Our campusActive travel

Walk, wheel or cycle to campus! Walking and cycling for your everyday journeys is a great way to boost your physical and mental health. Active travel is good for you and the environment and does not contribute to pollution. Walking or cycling for just 30 minutes a day can reduce the risk of several serious health conditions, and has been shown to enhance mental health.


ExHALE (Exercise for Health, Achievement, Lifestyle and Energy) is a support service with valuable online resources open to all members of the University community and beyond, to encourage and provide advice on activity, healthy habits and improved wellbeing.

Check out the ExHALE walking routes, designed as a guide to encourage walking both on and off campus. The routes are varying length, effort, and intensity, so whatever you're looking for we will have a suitable option. Be prepared and check the weather forecast.

Step Count Challenge

The University regularly takes part in the Step Count Challenge, designed to get you active with a bit of friendly competition and prizes for the team with the most steps. In 2023, over 50 Strathclyde teams took part and walked well over 100 million steps!


Did you know that we're a Cycle Friendly Campus? We are always working to improve facilities to make cycling easier and more accessible for our students and staff.

There are over 700 bike parking spaces on campus. Students and staff can use our four bike hubs for secure indoor storage. See the University map to view cycle hubs and parking on campus and our bike parking page for information on getting access to the bike-hubs.

We also have showers available on campus.
