People who do sports stay fit, and help their studies too: this is the main concern of the Padua University Sports Centre (CUS), the most extensive sports facility in the province, which offers many opportunities to take part in sports, competitive and amateur alike, at the two structures located in Via Giordano Bruno and Via Jacopo Corrado. The Centre is open to students, to all employees of the University and, under certain conditions, to ordinary members of the public as well.
In addition to services for payment, there are "no pay" activities for which the Centre makes its facilities available free of charge to users during set time slots, typically the track and field arena, 5-aside football pitch, etc. The University of Padua Alumni Association, in concert with the university and inspired by the motto Universa Universalis Patavina Libertas, seeks to unite all UniPD graduates of whatever age, background, position, and location within a community to which all may have freedom of access and equal consideration. In this way, former students — alumni — can continue to be inspired in their professional and private lives by the fundamental values of the University, becoming standard bearers wherever they may be.
