Awards

Sport at the University of Melbourne is nearly as old as the institution itself.

Outstanding sporting achievement and distinguished service to intervarsity sport is recognised by the annual awarding of Blues and Sports Awards. The University of Melbourne awards Blues to student-athletes for outstanding sporting performance at the UniSport Nationals Div 1 and 2 and Championship events.

Blues and Sport Awards

The tradition of the Blue originated at Oxford and Cambridge Universities is now an annual event with the University of Melbourne Blues announced each November. To date, over 11,000 Blues or Half-Blues have been awarded to University sporting representatives since 1870 - these include University of Melbourne sporting alumni who are Olympians, World Champions, Commonwealth Games representatives, Wallabies and many other National champions and representatives.

The University Sport Awards recognizes outstanding individual and team performances of athletes and teams representing the University at endorsed Intervarsity or Uni Sport Australia events.
