Sports & Wellbeing

For many students sport, physical activity, and well-being plays an important part in University life.  For some, it’s about the challenge of trying something new, making friends with similar interests, socialising, volunteering, and developing leadership skills. Other students enjoy representing their university at the highest level and achieving intervarsity success. At DCU we want you to get involved and to develop and succeed at whatever level you choose to participate.  Whatever your goal, the opportunities are endless at DCU. DCU Sports & Wellbeing is responsible for the development of student sports across all DCU campuses and also promoting the optimal health and well-being of the DCU campus community.
