Edinburgh is one of the UK’s leading sports universities.
Our facilities, services and programmes are rated among the very best in the UK.
Our superb facilities are managed by the University’s Centre for Sport and Exercise (CSE).
They include extensive state-of-the-art gyms, a residential centre for outdoor activities, a swimming pool, widespread playing fields and the leading sports injuries clinic in the country.
We also offer a year-round programme of exercise classes and gym support and specialist facilities for climbing and swimming.
Our facilities are regularly awarded the top rating in The Sunday Times University Guide and are consistently voted ‘best gym in town’ (2002- 2010, Scotland the Best!).
The Edinburgh University Sports Union (EUSU) offers an amazing array of more than 60 different sports clubs to choose from.
Our clubs are well managed and equipped and offer regular coaching, training and competition.
Edinburgh is heavily involved in a variety of Scottish and British university competitions, including the prestigious BUCS Premier Leagues.
Our clubs cater for all ability levels, so if you prefer a more relaxed approach to sport, there are a range of informal leagues, tournaments and fun events to get involved with.
We also offer performance sports programmes for both individual athletes and teams.
We provide bursaries, training programmes and a range of support services to help gifted students realise their sporting potential.
