Glasgow University Rugby Football Club is a rugby team at the University of Glasgow in Scotland.

GURFC was formed in 1869 and is one of the University's oldest student groups, predating the Glasgow University Sports Association, to which it is now affiliated. The Club is a founding member of the Scottish Rugby Union and has fielded thirteen full internationalists. The 1st XV finished 3rd in the second division of the BUCS Men's Scottish Conference.[1] in the 2010–11 season and reached the Semi-Finals of the Scottish Universities Conference Cup.

The team plays in black and gold, the colours of the University, and is affiliated to the Glasgow University Sports Association (GUSA).

Notable players[edit]

The first GURFC Scotland cap was DA McLeod in 1886.[2]
