Division of Student Affairs

RIT Dubai recognizes the importance of sports to student life. Students are encouraged to be active in sports as it will help students not only to gain vital experience and skills, but students engaged in athletics and sports have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills, work in a team and learn that regular practice and dedication leads to success. The Student Services Department provides a wide range of quality sports and recreational opportunities in an organized and safe environment. Good training and dedicated, professional coaches are key elements of the programs provided. Tryouts for athletics teams take place the first week of every semester.
