Complex helps students combine leisure and learning

 Albury sports complex

A new $800,000 sports complex will help improve campus life for students at Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Albury-Wodonga.

Previously an empty space on campus, the complex, part funded through the Student Services and Amenities Fee, provides a social area for students to get the most out of their university experience.

Charlie Shepherd a second-year Bachelor of Physiotherapy student, also an avid sports fan and student residences Residential Advisor, says students are really enjoying the new complex.

"Having somewhere which is a great communal space is fantastic for the campus. There are always people down there shooting hoops or kicking a footy around.

"It adds a lot to the University and shows there is more to university life than lectures and learning."

The complex features a full size multi-purpose court for basketball, netball, volleyball or handball, a half-size practice court, spectator seating, lockable storage facilities and lighting.

There is also a covered shelter area complete with barbecues, tables and seating for up to 80 students.

A sports and clubs day was held at the complex recently to celebrate its completion.
