Welcome to East London Sport
Voted the most ambitious and the most improved university in the UK for sport, we pride ourselves on being able to provide a wide-ranging programme of sporting, health and fitness opportunities for staff, students and the wider community.
In 2010, the University of East London was ranked 124th in the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) league – the National Governing Body for University Sport. With only a handful of teams and no medallists, East London Sport was created. Since then we have won the BUCS Most Improved University for Sports, and increased our ranking each year in the BUCS tables. We’ve also helped support many Olympians and Paralympians, 34 teams across a wide range of sports and 500+ active students.
Whether you want to represent UEL as part of our Clubs or High-Performance Programme, access our world-class facilities at SportsDock or engage with the ever-changing events and activities delivered as part of Move East London, we’ve got something for you! We’re passionate about getting active and the benefits that come with it, from maintaining physical and mental well-being and making friendships that will last a lifetime, to enhancing your CV.
