It is also known for its lively Carnival celebrations, Annual Wine Festival and its surrounding picturesque villages and legendary Cypriot hospitality. 

Sports facilities

The sporting activities and wellness program is addressed to students but also to every member of the University community. Aimed at people who are accustomed to play sports, but also to those looking for cues to begin to play sports and get to know activities. Our goal every year is to encourage more students and staff to "peel off" from a sedentary lifestyle.

Student clubs

  • There are student clubs at the University that cover a wide range of interests in culture, arts, music, dance, sports and entertainment. The ability of students’ engagement in extra-university interests offers rich experiences and unforgettable memories.
  • The Clubs are established upon students’ initiative and consist of students only. A prerequisite for the establishment of a student club is the submission of a statute to the Academic Affairs and Student Welfare Service and the approval of the Club’s aims and activities by the University authorities.
