Students Union & Events
Student life isn't just about studying. The RAU is dedicated to making your university experience as amazing as it can, including our events, which give you the perfect opportunity to socialise and make long lasting friends. We have socials such as the winter and summer balls, karaoke nights, film nights, themed nights out, and much more.
Our sports teams include netball, hockey, football, archery, lacrosse, rugby and so many more. Typically, the sports teams train on a Monday and Tuesday evening, with matches on Wednesdays, either played home or away. There are also equestrian sports such as polo, dressage and horse riding with our own livery yard and facilities such as a canter track and arena.
On campus we have a great range of sports facilities from the outdoor all-weather pitches and courts for netball and tennis, to an indoor sports hall, table tennis tables and a gym on campus. Many of our teams compete in the British University and College Sports League (BUSC).
You'll find all aspects of life at the Royal Agricultural University varied and exciting. We pride ourselves on being large enough that many facilities are on-site, yet small enough to create a friendly atmosphere with a strong sense of community.
