Sports, Arts and Entertainment

The University of Milan promotes sporting and cultural activities for students and collaborators, by providing facilities and financial resources for both independent associations and student groups, and through collaborations and special arrangements with the main theatres in the city.

Sporting Activities

The CUS, Centro Universitario Sportivo (Italian text), or University Sports Centre, is an amateur sports association which, for the last 60 years, has promoted the practice of physical education and sport by students and university collaborators.

Every year, the centre organises a vast range of sports courses, which cover everything from traditional disciplines, such as swimming and athletics, to more modern activities, such as hydro-biking, yoga and capoeira.

The CUS has special arrangements with a series of gymnasiums and sporting facilities, where students and university collaborators who hold a green or blue card can enjoy sports at reduced prices.

Becoming a CUS member is easy and advantageous: simply choose the type of card required, complete the application form (Italian text) and hand it in to the CUS Point.

Arts and Entertainment

University of Milan students can take part in music and theatre initiatives organised by the University’s resident cultural institutions, which include the Orchestra, the Choir and the CUT, the University Theatre Centre.

The University of Milan Orchestra offers students the possibility to audition for a classical music ensemble that is both young and prestigious, thanks to its close collaboration with the “Giuseppe Verdi” Conservatory of Milan and the direction of Maestro Alessandro Crudele.
