The Universiade is an international multi-sport event, organized for university athletes by the International University Sports Federation (FISU).
The name is a combination of the words "University" and "olympiad". The Universiade is often referred to in English as the World University Games or World Student Games; however, this latter term can also refer to competitions for sub-University grades students, as well.
The Universiade is the 2nd largest multi-sporting event in the world, second only to the Olympic Games. The most recent Winter and Summer Universiade were held in Granada,Spain-Štrbské Pleso & Osrblie, Slovakia and Gwangju, Korea, respectively, in 2015.
