We are excited to welcome students to our sports facilities. We have implemented a number of new procedures in order to ensure the safety of all users. Please be sure to read the procedures before visiting our facilities.

About us

The University of Ottawa’s traditional colours have long been garnet and grey. Before the team had an official nickname, sports teams were often referred by their team colours. The Ottawa sports media began calling the team by the colours’ initials, “GG”. A Gee-Gee is also the lead horse in a race.
