Exercise is a great way to manage stress, keep healthy, get some downtime and even socialise. UNIC offers a wide range of sports programmes and state-of-the-art facilities for exercise and sports, satisfying all levels of interest, commitment and fitness. We aim to provide the opportunity to all our students to participate in competitive sports, while also promoting the development of leadership and team skills and the fostering of sportsmanship.

UNIC is an active member of the “Cyprus University Sports Federation” (CUSF) in Football (Soccer), Futsal, Basketball, Volleyball, Table Tennis, and the Marathon, with men’s and women’s teams. We dominate competitive university sports organised by the Federation. The winning teams are eligible to compete in the European Universities Championships, organised by the European Universities Sports Association.
