The Athletic Union (AU) is the student organisation for the support and development of University sports clubs. We are run by students, for students, and we are led by a full time student president who dedicates a year away from their studies to University Sport. If you are a student at St Andrews then you are automatically a member of the AU and so have the right to join any of our 60+ sports clubs, who currently have over 4,000 members (more than half of the student body).

Sport is a central part of the unique student experience at the University of St Andrews. Our sports clubs offer a massive variety of opportunities to participate, compete and experience a huge variety of sports at all levels. There is something for everyone, whatever your level of fitness or experience, with beginners particularly welcome in all of our clubs.
