The 2015 Winter Universiade, the XXVII Winter Universiade, is a multi sport winter event which will take place in Granada, Spain. On 14 March 2009, FISU announced that the host would be Granada because they are the only bid.[1]

On 25 June 2014 FISU announced, that Slovakia became the co-host of 2015 Winter Universiade. FISU approved to move the Nordic Skiing and Biathlon events to Štrbské Pleso and Osrblie in Slovakia.[2] This decision has been taken to anticipate the difficulties faced by the Granada 2015 Organising Committee in hosting these particular events.[3]
