Aberdeen University Sports Union is home to over 50 Sports Clubs, winning medals in many sports. The University has an excellent record in The Granite City challenge, the largest multi-sport event in Aberdeen, competing against local rivals Robert Gordon University. The Students Association organises a wide range of non-competitive clubs, intra-mural leagues and one-off physical activity events. Some of our students have competed in the Commonwealth Games, the Paralympics and many other national and international competitions.
