Recreation & Fitness

At CBU we know that physical fitness is important to your well being. Cape Breton University is dedicated to providing students with a variety of physically active choices. Throughout the year, students will be able to participate in:

  • Daily and nightly intramurals
  • Yoga and Pilates classes
  • Super Bowl Flag Football
  • and so much more

The benefits of regular physical activity range from stronger bones and toned muscles to better sleep, higher self-esteem and reduced stress.


The Intramural program promotes an environment of fun, fair play and athletic competition through the medium of physical activity.

The University offers a wide variety of Intramural activities on an individual, dual and team basis which gives each individual an opportunity to choose the type of activity they are most interested in. It is our policy to offer all interested students an activity in which to participate.

We offer both organized and free-time sessions throughout the year.

Organized activities include both team play and individual competition, while free-time events allow students, faculty and staff use of the facilities for the activity of their choosing.
