Sport at UON

UKAD Clean Sport Higher Education Partner 2023/24 logo

The University provides sporting services for students, staff and the public, striving to be the heart of sport in Northampton. We have student and staff offers for recreational activities via our active campus project and our partner gym and pool at Trilogy leisure. Our student sports clubs offer free sports clubs to students, both recreational and competitive. For our elite athletes, we host four super teams and offer our Elite athlete scholarship, with the aims of nurturing sporting talent to compete at the highest level. Even if you are not a member of the university, we offer opportunities for public access to our sports lab services, sports injury rehab clinic and sports facilities.

We have key links to local sporting partners Northampton Town FC, Northampton Saints, N-Sport, Northampton Leisure Trust, Northampton County Cricket Club, Northampton Swim Club and Northamptonshire FA who benefit our students through placement, graduate, and coaching opportunities.

For 2023/24, we are pleased to have been selected as a UKAD Clean Sport partner organisation.
