Sport for students

University of Malta students benefit from free use of a number of sport facilities.

The sports hall, adjacent to the National Pool Complex may be booked for basketball, handball, badminton, volleyball and netball. Students may also book and make use of the five-a-side football pitches. 

Students may benefit from special rates for use of both the Olympic size swimming pool and The Kinetika Gym at the National Pool Complex. The gym is open daily between 06:00 and 22:00 and between 07:00 and 17:00 during weekends. Squash courts are also available within the same building.

The Student Athlete Support Programme (SASP) strives to assist student-athletes who practice sport on a regular basis at national and/or international level. Through the SASP the University encourages and supports student-athletes to find a balance between their academic and sporting commitments.
