The best university in the UK for sport

At the heart of everything University of Nottingham Sport do is our drive to be the best UK university for sport, activity and wellbeing. We strive to reach our goal by engaging and inspiring our community alongside supporting our student-athletes to excel. 

We're very proud to be the Times and Sunday Times Sports University of the Year 2024, the Daily Mail University of the Year 2024 and the top university in the UK for team sport in the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) rankings. These accolades reflect our commitment to sporting excellence and the importance of sport and activity in the University of Nottingham student experience. 

As one of the founding institutions of the inter-varsity competition in 1919, now known as BUCS, we have a proud history of sporting success and count several Olympic, Paralympic, World and Commonwealth champions amongst our current student and alumni community. 

Moving forwards, the University of Nottingham has an ambitious Vision for Sport and we're fortunate to work with a diverse range of partners and supporters to achieve this. If you'd like to be part of our work, we'd love to hear from you!
