The 2015 Winter Universiade, the XXVII Winter Universiade, was a multi sport winter event held in Granada, Spain and Štrbské Pleso, Slovakia. On 14 March 2009, FISU announced that the host would be Granada because they were the only bid.[1]

On 25 June 2014, FISU announced that Slovakia would become 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 had been taken to anticipate the difficulties faced by the Granada 2015 Organising Committee in hosting these particular events.[3]

Sports[edit]

Four sports took place in Slovakia, from January 24 – February 1. From February 4 – 14, the other sports were contested in Granada.[4]
