Be active with our Oriam: Scotland’s Sports Performance Centre, situated on our Edinburgh Campus.

In line with the latest Scottish Government guidelines, Oriam re-opened its doors on the 31 August 2020; with a phased re-introduction of classes, a new pre-booking system online, signage and one way systems, cleaning services and new seating layouts in Bistro and other communal areas.

  • Ensuring all training sessions are run to a strict capacity so that they can be held safely.
  • Running all activities in accordance with the relevant sports governing body guidelines.
  • Introducing a bookings system for all sports club activity to enable track and trace.
  • We are finalising an activity timetable that ensures students will have the opportunity to participate in sport or other physical activity once a day if they choose to – having a huge facility such as Oriam allows us to do this.
  • If you are joining us from online using the Responsive Blended Learning model, follow @Oriam on social media for more info on staying fit from wherever you are in the world.

We look forward to seeing you! Stay safe, and don’t forget we are here to support you, every step of the way.
