Welcome Fest is a highlight on the student calendar. You’re exposed to the breadth of societies and clubs available to you, collect one too many goodie bags and consume a fair chunk of information about the University landscape. That’s great; as a matter of fact, exactly what we want.
Before your weekly schedule is jam-packed with classes, lectures, and tutorials, we wanted to let you in on the ‘need to know’ for Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness (SUSF).
Now, we are not in the business of just adding another thing to your diary. We believe we can complement your experience by maximising your time on campus through our offerings. Undergrads and post-grads, here’s your SUSF starter pack.
First up, get bang for your buck by purchasing our annual membership for $10. This will give you discounted rates to access our two health and fitness centres, a variety of short courses, reduced court booking fees and the gateway to be part of one of our 40+ sports clubs.
Immerse yourself in the longstanding history of Intercollegiate Sport. For decades we have provided residents of St Andrew’s, St Paul’s, Sancta Sophia, St John’s, Wesley and The Women’s College with opportunities to compete against each other in a range of sports. The rivalry and tribalism each college showcases makes it an electric scene for both competitors and spectators alike.
Have a break between classes? Reap the benefits of SUSF’s location by getting your workouts in, in the middle of the day. The Arena Sports Centre and Sports & Aquatic Centre are our two gym facilities, conveniently located on opposite sides of campus. Whether you’re new to exercise or an elite athlete, try our 3-day gym trial to see if we are the right fit for you.
Throughout semesters 1 and 2, we offer free water safety classes for University of Sydney students. Over 6 weeks you will learn basic water skills, stroke, and water survival skills in a safe and friendly environment. Registrations are open now, and classes will commence on Tuesday, 1 March 2022.
Whether you’re a student or staff member, compete against other faculties in different codes. It is a great chance for everyone to have fun and contest for their faculty in a social atmosphere. Sports on offer include touch footy, soccer, basketball, and volleyball – to name a few.
Be part of one of our fastest-growing competitions, social netball. Running 3 times a week on our state-of- the-art courts, you’ll be working up a sweat and having an absolute ball at the same time. You can join as an individual or a whole team. Rally the troops and secure your place today!
