Popular recreation activities

TUSUR students have a very dynamic and exciting life. Numerous clubs and groups are available for students with different hobbies: music, extreme sports, tourism, dancing, anime and manga. At TUSUR you can find everything you need to have a time of your life. Our students go to the gym, they cycle, ski, walk in the Tomsk parks and take strolls along the quay of the Tom River, go to the cinema etc. Student life is much more than just studying, it also means friends, recreation, new acquaintances and experiences.


TUSUR has at its disposal an infrastructure ideally suited for sports. There is a specially equipped sports center including a gym with modern fitness machines and a dancing aerobics class. Football players have their own training ground. Power lifters exercise in a superb training room, comfortable enough for both newcomers and the “star” of TUSUR, Anton Krasilnikov, a world-class athlete and a world power-lifting champion. There are also rooms for sambo and table tennis. Furthermore, there is a chess center. Andrey Belozerov, an international grand chess master and champion of Europe, had a simultaneous chess display at 18 chessboards to celebrate the opening of this center. In his speech before the game he emphasized that chess was an important kind of sport for engineers, because there one needs to calculate several moves in advance.

Rowing, an unusual kind of sport, very popular at Oxford and Cambridge, is also wide-spread among TUSUR students. Our rowers are members of the Russian national team and take part in competitions all over the world.

Our sportsmen have achieved great success in another unconventional sport – paragliding. Sometimes one can see about 20 paragliders over the River Tom next to university buildings of TUSUR.
