University Games

The University Games consists of the national Australian University Games and four regional competitions. In Victoria, the regional competition is the Southern University Games.

Both competitions are large-scale multi-sport events in which you can become involved.

If you're 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.
