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.

World Student Games (Pre-Universiade)

An "International Universities Championship" was held in 1923 under the auspices of the Union Nationale des Étudiants Français (UNEF). Official "Summer Student World Championships" were organised by the Confédération Internationale des Étudiants (CIE) from 1924 and were renamed "International University Games" in 1930. From 1949 onwards a biennial "Summer International University Sports Week" was organised by the Fédération Internationale du Sport Universitaire (FISU) and became the "World University Games" in 1957. The event was first officially entitled "Universiade" in 1959. Alternative championships were organised in 1939 and by the Union Internationale des Étudiants (UIE) from 1947-1962. Women's events were first held in 1930.


World Student Games (UIE)

The first official World Student Games were organised in 1924 and were held under the auspices of the Fédération Internationale du Sport Universitaire (FISU) from 1949. An alternative event was organised by the Union Internationale des Étudiants (UIE) from 1947-1962, including one unofficial Games in 1954.
