Whatever your game or level, the university will attempt to find a way for you to enjoy and develop your skills.
From popular team games through to individual pursuits, our clubs provide opportunities for training, competition and fun. These clubs are administratively run and organised by students for students.
Most the activities on offer are subsidised, so make sure you make the most out of your time at the University and join a club. Perfect an existing interest or discover a new pastime. You can join one or more clubs assuming they don't clash.
The University of Brighton has a number of clubs which compete on a weekly basis against other universities in BUCS competition.
