See-through - 50th-anniversary-logo (1)

Since gaining Royal Charter status in 1966, the University of Bath has enjoyed a special relationship with sport. Our rich history of scholars and successes – both national and international – represents the potential for athletes based at the University and, combined with our academic opportunities, offers students a unique blend of first class sport with first class education.

To commemorate the University’s 50th anniversary, we take a look back at the history of sport at the University,  from protests in May 1969 calling for the introduction of sports facilities, to the London Olympics in 2012 when a record number of University of Bath-associated athletes represented their countries on the biggest stage of all.

Listed below are just a few highlights from the University’s history of sport:

To celebrate the University’s 50th anniversary, on May 6 the Claverton Down campus will host the University of Bath Festival:
