The Paris-Sud 11 University Service of  Physical and Sporting Activities (SUAPS) aims at teaching and managing all Physical, Sporting and Artistic Activities (APSA) for the benefit of students and staff alike.

This pedagogically autonomous service administratively reports to UFR STAPS.

Paris-Sud 11 SUAPS headquarters are located on the Orsay campus (Building 225) and host two poles:

  • Pole 91 is intended for the Orsay campus students of the Science, STAPS and Law UFRs, as well as the IUT.

Main goals

The Paris-Sud 11 SUAPS curriculum is set by the Ministry of Education and includes:

  • Skill learning: validating one APSA practice in a list of optional sports.
  • Personal Training: offering students and staff adapted leisure practice in health, relaxation, personal development, confrontation…, with a diversified APSA program..
  • Training and supervision by the Students Sports Associations of the competitions offered by the French Federation of University Sports.
