Our Athletic Union (AU) has 41 clubs and over 85 teams that compete in BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) competitions on a weekly basis.

The Sports Office manages the day to day running of the Athletic Union and is governed by the AU Exec and club committees.

In addition to the BUCS teams, the Athletic Union also supports various recreational and outdoor activity teams from Tchoukball to Sub Aqua.
