The University’s £30 million Sportspark is now the biggest indoor sports centre in Britain, thanks to the opening of the £3.8 million Haydn Morris Sports Hall in 2009.
The sports facility boasts a state-of-the-art Olympic-sized swimming pool, athletics track and gym, as well as an extensive range of activities including aerobics, archery, athletics, badminton, basketball, climbing, cricket, fencing, hockey, indoor football, martial arts, squash, table tennis, trampolining and yoga.
The Sainsbury Centre is an inspirational public art museum at the University of East Anglia.
The Norman Foster building houses the Robert and Lisa Sainsbury Collection comprising modern work by artists such as Henry Moore, John Davies, Alberto Giacometti and Francis Bacon, as well as art from Africa, the Pacific, the Americas, Asia, Egypt, medieval Europe and the ancient Mediterranean. The Centre also hosts a number of prestigious temporary exhibitions from around the world each year.
The Sainsbury Centre galleries, café, restaurant and school of Art History and World Art Studies (ART) are used by over 150,000 people a year.
The 1,550 LCR venue on campus attracts touring bands and artists as well as regular club nights. High profile performers include Lily Allen, Calvin Harris, The Killers, The Ting Tings, The Enemy, The Streets, Primal Scream, Jack Penate, and Maximo Park.
Meanwhile the Waterfront, based in the city centre, has attracted acts including CSS, MGMT, Noah and the Whale, Foals and the Futureheads, and holds regular club nights.
The UEA Student Union runs the prestigious LCR and Waterfront venues, as well as many other commercial enterprises on campus including the £1.2 million recently refurbished Union Pub and Bar, the Hive, the Graduate Students Club Bar, and a variety of eateries, cafes and shops.
The Union also organises most of the entertainment on campus, from the freshers’ week to the end of term balls, and runs a range of sports clubs and societies, including the acclaimed independent student newspaper Concrete, campus television station Nexus UTV, and radio station Livewire 1350AM.
