SportUNE contributes substantially to the wellbeing of the University and the regional community. We provide leadership by encouraging regular programs in sport and exercise and maintaining a diverse range of high-quality sporting, fitness, and health facilities.
From modest beginnings in 1938, we’re proud to say that SportUNE has developed into a major sporting facility that sits comfortably amongst the finest in the country, and well above average in most rural and regional areas.
Our student participation rates are amongst the highest of any Australian University and we pride ourselves on our extensive community involvement with exercise and health programs.
SportUNE is a trading name of UNE Life, a non-profit organisation and a controlled entity of the University of New England within the meaning of the Public Finance and Audit Act 1983 and the University of New England Act 1993.
We employ over 40 staff from the UNE student body and the wider community, offering expertise across a broad range of disciplines. Our employees are passionate about sharing their knowledge of fitness and physical wellbeing and look forward to welcoming you to our centre.
“Find your balance”
This motto has been adopted at SportUNE with the aim of highlighting the desirable equilibrium between academic work and physical pursuits in life.
