Sports, Clubs and Societies

There are a variety of sports, clubs and societies for you to get involved with on campus.

Crichton LGBT+



Crichton LGBT+ is a social and welfare mindset for those of us at Crichton Campus who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, or another related identity. We aim to creating a welcoming space for people who identify as LGBT+ as well as people questioning their identity.




Charities Club

Our members organise charity events to raise money for various charities throughout Dumfries. In certain years, we hold Charity of the Year events which help promote and fund these organisations. We have supported Headway (now Compass) in previous years. We’re always looking for new ideas and help running charity events, so if you want to get involved, contact the CUCSA Facebook page here.




Rowing: Crichton University Campus Boat Club

Meeting for training several times a week and taking part in competitions and regattas on a regular basis through the year the Boat Club is one of the most popular activities for Dumfries Campus students. We are always looking for enthusiastic individuals to join our team so come and enjoy our three free tasting sessions! From beginners to more advanced, everyone is welcome!

During the racing season training is on the water and becomes more intense as competitions arise and during the winter season training is mainly indoors as the river is not rowable most of the time so don’t be put off by the Scottish winter weather.

Time: Racing Season: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. The times will vary during the week, however Sundays are 10am and weekdays sessions are at 6 pm sessions. Additional morning sessions will occur as and when needed
Winter Season: Monday 6pm, Tuesday 7pm, Wednesday 7pm, Thursday 6:30pm, and Sunday 10am, plus occasional morning sessions.
Place: We train at Nithsdale Amateur Rowing Club boat house situated on Nith Avenue (Greensands, Dumfries).

Phenology Garden Club


Our Dumfries Campus is lucky enough to have its own Teaching and Phenology Garden and we’re always looking for students (and staff) to get involved in planting and general garden activities. Come have some green fingered fun and learn some plant facts along the way. Currently meeting Wednesday afternoons.

You can find out more about the Garden on the website here or contact the Garden Club through their facebook page here
