Université Paris Dauphine - PSL is one of the most athletic universities in Ile-de-France. Out of all students, nearly 40% regularly sign up for our activities.

The university offers more than 30 sports, all supervised by certified, high-quality instructors. 

Through sports activities, the university aims to: 

  • teach students to develop and manage their physical potential, allowing them to gain skills in sports and physical activities; 
  • help students to balance their life (stress management, health, etc.); 
  • and promote togetherness, practical lessons about life and teamwork, as well as democracy and civic-mindedness in the context of the university athletic community.
