There are plenty of ways to be active at the University of Sydney, whether you're keen on social competition, elite sport or basic fitness.

Our campuses offer everything you need to get and stay fighting fit. There are great facilities, tailored fitness programs, and special scholarships for athletes through the Elite Athlete Program, which has supported medal-winning Olympians and international rugby players and cricketers.

Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness runs two fully equipped fitness centres that offer gyms and weight rooms. You can also do laps in our Olympic-sized swimming pool, scale the climbing wall, team up with friends on the basketball courts or challenge them at squash.

If you prefer outdoor activities, there are several tennis courts, ovals and other green spaces where you can throw a frisbee or kick a football.

If competition is your forté, you could join a college- or faculty-based sporting club. Either way, you’ll be surrounded by like-minded people who share your passions.
