Sport and a healthy lifestyle are inextricably linked with each other, because physical training is the basis of a successful career and fruitful work. That is why we pay great attention to supporting sports clubs and organizing mass sports events at the university.
Today, the university has 18 sports destinations, including badminton, basketball, running club, volleyball, rowing club, darts, e-sports, table tennis, swimming, sambo, quick response squadron, strikeball, tourist club, fitness, frisbee, football, hockey, chess. They development is coordinated by the Student Sports Club "Everest". It is a member of the Association of Student Sports Clubs of Russia and takes an active part in organizing various sports events for all students and university staff.
University classes in physical culture and team training are held in a specialized sports complex with equipped sports halls.
Every year, our student athletes participate in more than 100 different competitions. In many sports, they become champions of the Ministry of Health and Social Development of the Russian Federation, winning prizes.
In 1971, University sports camp was built on the bank of the Volga near the town of Konakovo, in which students and university staff can have fun at the same time in winter and summer. They have at their disposal a well-equipped beach, a gym, sports fields for playing football, basketball, volleyball and tennis.
The camp is actively used by student society for conducting out-of-school schools and team-building.
