The best university in the UK for sport

Sports University of the Year 2024

The University of Nottingham has done the double – by being named Sports University of the Year by two influential national university league tables.

Nottingham has been crowned the best university in the UK for sports by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2024, published today (Friday 15 September) – the third time the university has been awarded the accolade by the publication since 2018.

It comes just days after also being named Sports University of the Year by the Daily Mail University Guide – in the first year that the national newspaper has produced its own UK university rankings and awards.
