British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) is the national organisation for higher education sport in the UK, providing sporting competition for Universities across the country. Imperial ranked 25th overall at the end of the 2018/19 season and number 1 in London and the South East. We have entered 83 teams for the 2017/18 season and will enter individuals into a broad range of sports throughout the year.

London Universities Sports Leagues (LUSL) is a pan-London sports competition for higher education institutions. There are hundreds of teams competing across the region and we have 75 teams taking part across the 14 sports. The frequency of fixtures and format of competition depends on the sport. LUSL is coordinated to compliment the BUCS competition framework and participation in both leagues for Imperial teams is commonplace.
