Australian University Games

The Australian University Games (AUG) is the largest annual multi-sport event held in Australia, involving over 8,000 participants from 42 universities. The perfect mix of competitive sport and activities, the Games are often described by students as the pinnacle of university life.

If you are a VU student interested in sport, you have the chance to represent VU at the Games in a variety of sports and social events. Representing your university at such a large sport event is a great opportunity to meet people from VU and across Australia.
