Sport at Abertay
The University of Abertay Dundee (UAD) is one of the newest and most innovative universities in the UK. We are extremely proud of our national and international successes in all areas of the University over the last ten years. As part of its commitment to the development of excellence, UAD has chosen to support and develop sport at all levels.
The Sports Office housed in the Graham Building is the specialist centre for student sport in the University. The Sports Office is home to the University Gym and also the Human Performance Centre, which represents a £1/2 million investment resulting in a specialist Sports Science & Medicine Centre within the University.
