Leisure time gives students the opportunity to spend time with friends, whether that be through relaxing or enjoying the campus facilities. Late afternoon and evening events are arranged on campus including organised activities in the residences, movie and music rooms or time for students to socialise with each other in the West End.
Concord benefits from a wide range of modern and well equipped facilities, which when open for students are fully supervised by qualified staff. Students have supervised or restricted access to key areas such as the swimming pool, outdoor pursuits area, science laboratories, art rooms and sports halls.
We have a purpose built art facility, housed within the English teaching building (Castle View) adjacent to the dining room. It has two well equipped art studios, an open plan space and an art library.

Sports facilities on site include two large sports halls, squash courts, dance studio, aerobics and weight training room, climbing wall, running track, indoor heated swimming pool, football pitches, volleyball courts, all weather basketball and tennis courts, and a high ropes course.
