Sport takes centre stage at Birmingham – not only on the playing fields but as a key part of our academic portfolio. We are one of the UK's leading sporting universities, regularly finishing in the top three of the BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) championship. We call it 'Playing with Pride' and one of the reasons why student athletes from across the country and around the world choose to study train and compete here.

For over 100 years, the University of Birmingham has played a major part in the success of the city, the region and the world. For almost as long, we have been recognised globally for our support and development of sport, exercise and movement. Our cutting edge research and work in this area is ensuring increased participation in sport and physical activity, transforming our talented students into elite athletes and pushing the boundaries of performance. From our world-class academics to our outstanding students – we inspire success, change lives and transform society.

Not surprisingly, the fastest people on the planet chose Birmingham to complete their preparations for the London Olympics. Team Jamaica, including world and Olympic champion sprinters Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake rated Birmingham as their best pre-Olympic training base to-date.

At Birmingham, sport is for all - from world class athlete to general fitness. The power of sport to motivate and inspire goes so much further than sporting ability. From keeping fit and leading healthy balanced lifestyles to learning a new activity, you will never have a better opportunity to get involved, have fun and make new friends. The rest of this website tells you more about the world of opportunity at UBSport and the wide range of high quality services and facilities we offer. If you still have any queries, we have a large team of professionals to help you make your time at university the best years of your life.
