Getting involved in sports clubs is a great way to make new friends, have some fun, be active and feel good. There are around 35 different clubs, all organised by GCU student volunteers and most hold weekly activities and participate in competitions throughout the year. Participating students interact and network with sports team members from other universities, they develop team working skills, boost their physical and mental wellbeing by participating in exercise, and have the opportunity to attend events like the Glasgow Taxis Cup and the Sports Ball.
Success stories
There are around 900 GCU student members of sports clubs, so it’s a huge community to get involved in. All the sports Clubs are collectively known as the GCU Wolves, watch out for the Wolf Mascot on campus.
