Welcome to the University of Nottingham Sport



Welcome to the University of Nottingham Sport

We strive to inspire our students, staff and local community to stay active and reach their potential in sport and fitness.

University of Nottingham Sport offers more student sports clubs than any other UK University and there's never been a better time to get involved.

With state-of-the-art facilities including the new £40m David Ross Sports Village, inclusive and disability sport provision, and the chance to see world-class sporting events right on your doorstep, there really is something for everyone. 

The breadth and depth of our sport offering is unrivalled and we are delighted to recently be announced as the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019 -  Sports University of the Year.


Engage, Inspire, Excel





The University of Nottingham is the most international university and the best in the UK for sports, according to the 2019 The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide.

It is the first time in the history of the guide that a university has been given two awards and enough to earn a shortlisting, for the second year running, for the coveted University of the Year award.

President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Shearer West, said: “”

The University prides itself on providing an environment for students to achieve their sporting potential whether this be someone taking up the sport for the first time, playing for the love of the game, or competing as an Olympic athlete.

The breadth and depth of sport offering is unrivalled with Nottingham having the largest intramural sports league with over 3,500 students playing against each other each week.
