About Varsity

Varsity is organised by UWE Bristol, University of Bristol and the students’ unions of both institutions. Click here for more info.

The Bristol Varsity Series aims to be the biggest Varsity event in Europe, with over 5,000 students, staff, alumni and local community coming together to participate, volunteer or spectate at a range of events. To help achieve this goal, this year the series will collaborate and partner with some of the biggest sporting events that the city has to offer.

Varsity encourages the development of more resilient sporting habits, intrinsically linking the benefits of health and mental wellbeing with being more active. This supports both universities’ drive to engage more people in physical activity.
In addition to this, the series provides a platform to showcase the extra-curricular activities and facilities on offer at both universities.
