Get involved with UBU

The University of Bradford Students’ Union has over 30 sports clubs to choose from. These include football, swimming, mixed martial arts, and archery.

Joining a sports club is a great way to make friends while studying with us. Many of the clubs organise regular social events and nights out, and some of them even holiday together.

Whatever you’re interested in, even if you've never played the sport before, you're welcome to join a club's training sessions and give it a go.
