Yes, you will need to prebook. For safety reasons, we have a maximum capcity of 30 people, meaning if we go over that number, we'd then need to turn any additional arrivals away!
- Where is Studio 2? What is the Sports and Wellness Hub?
You can find the sports and wellness hub based on the main campus. It's a 7 minute from the Warwick University Bus Interchange, heading straight on the footpath near the Radcliffe Conference centre.
