The NYUAD recreational sports program is designed to offer students as many different opportunities as possible.
We program a variety of activities like rock climbing, skiing, go-karting, kayaking, ice skating, bowling, indoor sky diving, and even paintball.
Recreational sports are based on student participation and interest — the NYUAD Athletics department considers almost any suggestion from students — to provide the opportunities that students want.
Join our New Rec Series
In addition to our weekly recreation activites, we have introduced new Rec Series where students have the opportunity to explore new activities more than just one time in order to further their interest and skills. Typical series will meet 3-5 times during the semester with hopes of the activity becoming a SIG, PE class or team in the future.
