2016

"The university offers a wide range of sports clubs and societies for anyone to get involved in. There are more professional sports teams but also intra-mural leagues where anyone can create a team."
"The student union (Teviot) is the centre of the social life on campus and is often a meeting point/starting point for a night out. There are a ton of societies that can cater to an individual's interests."
"The gym is really nice, very busy though. The swimming pool could be open more often."
"The local people are friendly and really helpful. They also have lots of sport clubs and active societies."
"I think the range of societies is fantastic. The standard of theatre put on by students is also pretty impressive."
"Sports is pretty important up here, there's a team for everything as well as many different societies. The Harry Potter society is a highlight!"
"Fantastic sports opportunities and one of the biggest varsity competitions in the UK."
