Sports on campus

We're one of the top sporting colleges of the University of London with more than 80 sports teams and fantastic facilities. You can play sport competitively against other universities, keep fit, or just enjoy a game of football with your friends.

Hear from some of our students:

“I started playing Ultimate Frisbee whilst I was on my year abroad, and I fell in love with the sport immediately. I found that Ultimate Frisbee is not well known around the university and so being President of the club has given me the opportunity to increase both the size of the club, as well as gain more awareness across the campus.”

Veronika, MA Consumption, Culture and Marketing, President of Royal Holloway Ultimate Frisbee

“I started rowing at school at school when I was 14. I competed for my country, South Africa, numerous times and went to the 2016 Rio Paralympics. Having the newly upgraded Royal Holloway fitness suite so close to my halls has made training much easier and having a full time strength and conditioning coach has greatly improved my quality of training. I’ve also been able to row with athletes from all over the world while rowing for the university.”

Dylan, BSc Computer Science, Sports scholar and Paralympic rower

"I didn’t get to play much basketball in school so I was really looking forward to joining when I came here. I love it. It’s a real team sport. We’ve got people who’ve played a lot and those who’ve never played before, which is perfect for the team dynamic."

Charlie, Basketball Club President
