Sports Centre 940

University Sports Centre

Sport plays a significant part in student life at St Andrews and enhances the unique experience of studying at Scotland's first university. With over 70% of students taking part in sport or physical activity, St Andrews continues to be one of the leading institutions in the UK in terms of sports participation.

In January 2015 a major £14m redevelopment and extension of the Sports Centre was undertaken, which now completed boasts a modern, spacious gym, a four-court sports hall incorporating a new technical climbing wall, an eight-court arena with removable bleacher seating for 400 spectators, an exercise and dance studio, a dedicated performance suite for elite teams and athletes and our new 4-court indoor tennis centre.

This momentous project reflects a tremendous commitment on the part of the university towards the development of sport at St Andrews and will give our students, staff and community members access to some of the best sporting facilities in Scotland. With the supporting infrastructure now in place, we expect to see our student athletes reach new heights and continue ever to excel.
