Exercise is a great way to destress, keep healthy, get some downtime and even meet new people. UNIC offers a large range of sports programmes and other exercise facilities catering to just about everyone.

UNIC dominates competitive university sports in Cyprus. Last year alone, 10 of our teams placed first, 5 placed second, and 7 placed third, in various Cyprus University Sports Federation Championships. The winning teams can then go on to compete in the European Universities Championships, organised by the European Universities Sports Association.

The University of Nicosia is an active member of the ‘Cyprus University Sports Federation’ (CUSF) in Football (Soccer), Futsal, Basketball, Volleyball, Table Tennis, and the Marathon, with both men and women’s teams.

Trials and thereafter selection of the best players are carried out at the beginning of each semester for each team. Selected players are automatically entitled to an athletic scholarship.

The Sports Office offers intramural activities, as well as special recreation and educative events. Our mission is 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.
