The Centre for Sport & Exercise (CSE) on the Edinburgh Campus is open to Heriot-Watt students and staff, as well as the local community, and provides the ideal setting for you to participate in sport and exercise at any level.

For students, the Sports Union, with almost 30 active sports clubs, gives you the ideal environment to participate in and compete in your chosen sport at higher education level. It also creates the perfect opportunity for you to socialise with your team mates and other Sports Union members.

Our first-class facilities include international-standard pitches, a football astrodome, championship squash courts, Scotland’s only indoor Golf Academy, and a whole range of facilities for team and racket sports.

The Sports Union is a student-led organisation offering Heriot-Watt students the perfect opportunity to join a club, receive coaching and compete in their chosen sport at higher education level. Find out which clubs you can join.

Our drop-in fitness classes are free to members, and are aimed at improving your fitness, strength and flexibility. We also offer fitness programmes, which will give you a more in-depth and structured exercise experience.
