University sports

The University Service of Physical and Sports Activities (SUAPS) offers all UNICAEN students and staff the opportunity to practice sports on a weekly basis. With nearly 70 sports activities, a wide range is offered of physical activities as well as sports equipment: climbing wall, fitness room, swimming pools, gymnasium, dance hall, tennis and outdoor racket and ball games…


The SUAPS also organises courses (skiing, diving, climbing, paragliding, golf, outdoor physical activities…) and events (Co Sports Nights, Racquet Night, Volleyball-fluo, Campus Sports Day, Fitness Evening, charity walks…) throughout the year.

To take advantage of SUAPS services, you must register online (with your digital account) or at the SUAPS secretariat and pay an annual fee of 30€ for student and €50 for staff. You will then be able to register for 2 to 3 courses among the many activities offered on each university site.

High and good level athletes

The SUAPS and its High and good level department (Département de haut et bon niveau universitaire – DHBNU) allow you to combine studies and high level sports practice. Under that status, you can benefit from adapted follow-up within your field of training and get the support of a referent teacher from your faculty, but also of a tutor teacher within the SUAPS for sports follow-up.

Physical activity can help!

If you are obese or suffer from a chronic disease, adapted physical activity (APA), also known as as physical activity on medical prescription, can help you improve your health and quality of life.A personalized adapted physical activity coaching program is offered at SUAPS, along with medical follow-up by a SSE doctor.
