Sports and fitness

Our campus is located next to DIAC Park, which is a large outdoor space comprising of various sports facilities, changing rooms, observatory points and a café. Students can go for walks, runs, cycle or simply enjoy the outdoor space.

Sports facilities on the DIAC park include basketball and volleyball courts, five-a-side football pitches, tennis courts and padel tennis courts.

In addition to these facilities, the University of Birmingham Dubai Students' Association runs regular practices on and off campus for our sports teams. Our sports teams are open to all students, so whether you’re an undergraduate or postgraduate student, you can get involved. You can also speak to the Student Experience team about setting up a new club during welcome week.
