Student Activities at DKU encourage co-curricular learning and community involvement, provide personal and leadership development, and support and enhance the student experience throughout a student’s time on campus. DKU offers a wide range of fitness classes and activities. Students may join student organizations and different sports clubs for leisure and recreational purposes, or participate all other student groups and programs, such as the DKU Philharmonic Orchestra and DKU Chorus.

A series of arts and culture programs aim to promote culture and diversity at DKU. Events and workshops in areas such as painting, design, music, film, crafts, photography, entertainment, and performance are regularly offered. They are also exciting learning opportunities for students to have face-to-face conversations with artists and experts from all over the world.


The DKU Athletics is dedicated to fostering a culture in which students can discover the values cultivated through sport, health and wellness, to guide them on their path to personal and professional success.

Diversity is a cornerstone of the Duke Kunshan University experience, and as such, DKU Athletics is committed to offering a wide range of sports and recreational programs so that students have equal opportunity to challenge themselves and explore their intellectual and athletic potential.

DKU Athletics strives to demonstrate to every student-athlete their responsibility in building a strong, vibrant community bound by shared values and respect. Our students are expected to lead through example, demonstrating integrity and moral character at all times.


The DKU new Sports Complex has recently opened for use following the opening of Phase II campus. Covering 13,000 square meters over four floors, the DKU Sports Complex includes courts, running tracks, workout areas, and many other recreation spaces, all fitted with advanced equipment and technologies.

In addition to a 180-seater basketball arena, the Sports Complex has a full-size soccer field, swimming pool and sauna, and courts for badminton, volleyball, tennis, squash and racquet ball, and table tennis. It also has indoor and outdoor running tracks; areas for cardio, weight, and strength training; a spinning and rowing room; and spacious studios for dance, yoga, and martial arts.

The Sports Complex is an essential part of our mission at DKU Athletics to provide a highly diverse physical education program, one that promotes sports and recreation, health and wellness, and more. The new facilities will provide endless opportunities for our campus community to interact, have fun, and invest in their physical and mental well-being.
