Our playful side
We turn out in the thousands to support our teams. A sell-out crowd of over 24,500 fans piled into TD Place to cheer on the uOttawa Gee-Gees and our local rivals, the Carleton Ravens, at the 2019 Panda Game — a fixture on the local university athletic calendar since 1955. We always cheer the loudest for all of our varsity teams, including the men’s and women’s Gee-Gees teams that compete in basketball, hockey, rugby, soccer, volleyball, swimming, and track and cross-country.
More than 8,000 students, employees, and alumni play in one of our 18 intramural programs in competitive or recreational leagues. We encourage all uOttawa students to get their bodies moving, whether on a team, in our Olympic-sized swimming pool, on one of our two ice rinks, in the martial arts room, or in the dance studio.
