Oriam is Scotland’s Sports Performance Centre.

Following significant funding from the Scottish Government, sportscotland, and Heriot-Watt University, Oriam was opened in 2016 as a world class facility that caters for performance athletes, students and the community in equal measure.

The Oriam vision is to inspire our communities through the facilities we provide and the interactions we have. Oriam is home to the Scottish FA, Scottish Rugby Union, Scottish Institute of Sport East, Heart of Midlothian Football Club, Scottish Squash and, of course, the HWU Sports Union!

Student memberships start from just £3.69 per week and include access to the fitness suite, all group exercise classes, the ability to book squash, badminton, basketball and table tennis as well as a range of member benefits.
