It also operates a number of bars across the campuses screening major sports events as well as holding regular themed nights such as comedy and poker. There is a student run radio station also broadcasting 24 hours a day available online. There are a wide range of sports available through the union across the different sites. These make use of the Trust Sports Centre in Paisley and the Hamilton Leisure Centre in Hamilton as well as other facilities.
