The University promotes meaningful participation of the students in sport and recreation through the provision of opportunities to organized sports as well as student led recreational initiatives. The University’s aim is to develop world class sporting and recreational facilities to support the activities of the students. Sports and recreational activities constitute a very important aspect of a University life, considering that students are at an age where they are at the peak of their performance levels. BIUST supports sports activities at all levels, locally through an affiliation with Botswana Tertiary Students Sports Association (BOTESSA), various national sports federations (NSF’s) and internationally through bodies like African University Sports Federation (FASU), CUCSA and the World University Sports Federation (FISU).
The following are some of the sporting codes available at the University;
BIUST has a variety of sports and recreational facilities that are used by both students and staff. All BIUST Sport clubs use the facilities for free while members of the community can also use BIUST Sport facilities after making a formal request. In addition to sporting facilities, the University has a fully equipped gym for the students as well as an outdoor fitness park.
