You can freeze your membership in the event of illness or injury – evidence may be required and is down to the discretion of management. You can however freeze a direct debit membership without restriction for a maximum of 3 months. In order to do this, we must receive written notice (to sport@port.ac.uk) of your desire to freeze, and dates to be frozen between – but this must be with a minimum of one month's notice.

If you have a 6 or 12 month membership, you are only able to cancel in the event of injury which substantially affects your ability to use the service. In order to cancel, we must receive written notice (to sport@port.ac.uk), with evidence to support this. To cancel your direct debit membership simply contact DFC with your reference number, just make sure you give a month's notice or you'll still be charged.

Once you have activated your membership, download our app UOP Sport, use your email and four digit pin to log in then you can book classes as you please! If you need your PIN please speak to any member of staff.
