The 2017 Summer Universiade (Chinese: 2017年夏季世界大學運動會; pinyin: 2017 Nián Xiàjì Shìjiè Dàxué Yùndònghuì), the XXIX Summer Universiade, is scheduled for Taipei, Taiwan. It will take place from 19 August to 30 August 2017.
In June 2015, Taipei's Mayor Ko Wen-je announced that organizers had shifted the opening and closing ceremonies from the Taipei Dome to the Taipei Municipal Stadium due to delays in the construction of the domed stadium.
The logo for the event was redesigned three times before a final choice, created by Yu Ming-lung, was selected.
