Victoria University's active living program – Thrive – encourages us all to be more active and mindful.

Our free activities are designed to improve your health, performance and personal fulfillment … and help you thrive.


Fancy a free game of social sport? What about a nice walk along the Maribyrnong River? We’ve got you covered.

Social sport

Thrive basketball, volleyball and table tennis have finished for the semester. Stay tuned for more social sport next semester, or email for more information. 

Badminton is still running:

A reminder that there are table tennis tables in Building P and the Active Living Courtyard at Footscray Park Campus, and table tennis bats and balls can be purchased from the VU Aquatic & Fitness Centre reception (Building L, Level 0).
