Campus life

Facilities for positive living

You can take advantage of a wide range of leisure facilities at the University, including over 90 clubs, societies and community projects for time outside the classroom.

Studying with St George's, University of London makes you part of the University of London confederation. This means that you can also enjoy all of their facilities too.

Supporting all beliefs

All students can access the St George's Chaplaincy, regardless of personal beliefs. It represents the main faith communities on campus, and offers everyone the chance to talk to somebody in complete confidence.

The Students' Union also has a number of faith societies to support each other spiritually, discuss and debate faith issues, and hold events.

The nearest mosque is a 15-minute walk from campus. There's also a Sikh place of worship five minutes' bus-ride away, and a Hindu temple 15 minutes away on the bus. Synagogues are located in Wimbledon, which is a 20-minute bus-ride from campus.

There are a number of churches within easy walking distance of campus. You can also find churches that conduct services in other languages, for example Portuguese, Russian, and Polish. In addition, London is home to a range of local community churches, for example Korean and Zambian.

For a body as active as your mind

The on-site Robert Lowe Sports Centre boasts a swimming pool, three squash courts, aerobic training rooms, and two well-equipped weight-training rooms. You can also use the large sports hall for badminton, volleyball, netball, five-a-side football, cricket and other sporting activities.

New members are always welcome to join field hockey, football, netball, rugby union, cricket, fencing and many other sporting groups. Whether you're at professional level or have never played in your life, there's a team to suit your abilities.

Away from campus, rowing is available at Chiswick on the River Thames, with sailing based at Royal Victoria Dock.
