The most useful would be for human’s health, if physical and mental work were combined in its activities.

For decades, it has been a good tradition in ONEU to hold an annual sports event between the faculties.
Applicants enrolling in the university are more likely to adjust to the educational activities and public activities of the faculty, and the main goal of the sports sector is to diversify the student’s life by participating in sports and recreational activities. There are many different sports sections in our university and, in addition to basic physical education classes, students have the opportunity to engage in professional sports such as volleyball, basketball, athletics, and more.
Our university has a lot of athlete students who have high achievements in various sports and which improve the results of ONEU in competitions between the universities of Odessa, in Ukrainian and international competitions.
The annual sports events include the following sports:
- athletics and others.
According to the results of all competitions, the Champions of the Spartakiades is determined, and every year in December a ceremony of rewarding the winners of the Spartakiades for each type of competition is held.
The sports sector closely cooperates with the teachers of the Physical Education Department, helping them organize various sports events and competitions. Each faculty has heads of the sports sector, which coordinate the athletes. It is mandatory to hold a traditional team meeting before the start of the sporting event, so that each student has the opportunity to defend the honor of his faculty. The sports sector gives you the opportunity to take care of yourself and your health and develop the cohesion of students.
The ONEU sports complex is located in the second building located at 18, Gogol Street. There is our main sports hall, which is designed for many types of competitions and physical education classes, a free gym that can be visited by any student. Also, physical education classes take place at the “Krajan” stadium where you can improve your athletic ability.
In the first place the sports sector is created in order to improve student cohesion, improve physical fitness, teamwork and bright time in our university!
