The Eastern University Games (EUG) is the largest of the three regional games held annually in July by Australian University Sport (AUS). In order to qualify and earn their right to compete at the Australian University Games, university teams compete at one of three regional University Games events.
In 2016, the EUG will be hosted by Wollongong and is expected to attract nearly 3,000 university and TAFE students from New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory. The games promote and increase student participation in competitive sport activities, whilst building leadership skills and a healthy balance of sport and education, with all competitors currently enrolled as eligible university or TAFE students aged 18 to 26 years.
