Establishing a legacy in the region, the NYUAD Athletics, Intramural, and Recreation department is helping to "inspire the bodies and minds of future global leaders through excellence in athletics."

With the benefit of experience behind them, athletes and coaches provide a complete range of physical opportunities for the NYUAD student athlete as well as the greater NYUAD community. Programs span competitive intercollegiate, intramural, recreational and club levels in addition to a number of physical education classes on offer each semester.



"There is so much on offer for students here, from Karting to Scuba diving. I play football 3 times a week and we have fixtures against other Universities which are very fun and competitive. These are such great opportunities which University students rarely get, and I am very thankful to have them."
