DURING COVID-19, COMPETITIVE SPORTS ARE SUSPENDED. THEY WILL RETURN AS SOON AS IT IS SAFE TO DO SO. As a member of Graduate College you will have access to all of Lancaster University’s outstanding sports facilities, including our state-of-the-art Sports Centre.
Clubs and societies
Lancaster University has hundreds of clubs and societies, including sports clubs from aikido and athletics to football, hockey and hiking. You can browse our current societies via the Students’ Union website.
The college has several sports teams which compete against the other 8 colleges throughout the year. These include Netball, Football, Darts, Pool. Teams recruit for new players at the beginning of each academic year, and at various points as spaces become available.
There is also the annual Carter Shield, which pitches all nine Colleges against each other in an event for people of all sporting abilities.
Turn up and Play
The Students' Union has a Turn Up & Play series, designed for students who want to get involved in sport and physical activity without necessarily joining a gym or a sports club. They are also enormous fun, and a great way to make new friends.
Sessions range from zumba and clubbercise to volleyball, table tennis and fencing.
Roses is the annual sporting competition between Lancaster and York Universitites. Hosted alternately at Lancaster or York's campus - it is a fantastic long weekend of sporting fun. See the Students' Union webpages for more details.
