Sports activities are vital for the wellbeing of students and are given due importance at DU. There is a separate section called “Student Activities Section” (SAS) in the Department of Student Affairs (DSA). DU has a full time “Sports Activity Officer” to guide and coach the students and sports teams; organise internal sports events; and arrange for participation in external sports events. Both indoor and outdoor sports facilities are made available on the University campus. Sports facilities and indoor fitness gym are also made available to students in the Ladies Hostel. The DSA identifies students’ talents, encourages them and provides them with opportunities to participate in various sports activities and competitions.
