Athletics and Recreation

UPEI Athletics and Recreation supports the University’s mission by providing leadership in the promotion and delivery of athletic excellence and quality physical activity programs and services that enhance health, wellness and a sense of community.

We strive to be a leader in delivering varsity sport and Campus Sport and Recreation by offering consistent and sustainable quality programs and services for students, staff, faculty, and the greater Island community.

We work to encourage participation in programs and services and prioritize opportunity, fair play, and equality and equity in delivery and experience.
