    Hi all,

    I've recently moved back to London and am undertaking an MSc in Health Psychology at both UCL and Kings College. I want to join a gym and as i'm low on money it appears student gyms are the way forward. I was wondering whether anyone had any advice on the quality of the UCL gym versus joining the university of London gym, or even Kings college... i'm obviously trying to save as much money a possible but don't want to spend money on something crap!

    Any advice would be ace,

    Thanks, Harriet

    UCL is cheaper but smaller - ULU has a pool!

    ULU has a pool and TV screens and is generally much nicer. But UCL has squash which ULU doesn't. This has always annoyed me, as I love to swim and play squash But I always go for ULU.

    ULU is significantly better than Bloomsbury fitness. I go to ULU, it's a bit more expensive, but definitely worth it. They've got an offer on at the moment, 4 for 3 months.

    I guess if you're forking out £50 a month, the £40 difference shouldbe more than enough for travel :awesome:

    Neither are that great. The only thing I preferred about ULU is that its open Sundays!

    ULU is less crowded, open on sundays and has a pool, so it is ULU over Bloomsbury for me. The price difference isn't that huge anyway.
