Students interested in various games and sports are provided with ample amount of opportunities so as to cater to the needs of the students.

Believing in the concept of “SPORTS FOR ALL” the university organizes various tournaments all-round the year for the students as well as for all teaching and non-teaching staff in the campus. This is also done with the aim of creating amity among the members of the university, which would ensure smooth functioning of all functions of the University.
In a drive to create a healthy sports culture in the university, sports form a major part of the North East Graduate Congress which is held every year to bring together students from various parts of North Eastern states to promote camaraderie among the youth. More than 5000 students participate in various events held across the campus from various institutions and ours to exhibit excellent performances and win the prestige of being the best.
