*The University of Ottawa’s traditional colours have long been garnet and grey. Sports teams used to regularly be referred to by their team colours, and before uOttawa had an official nickname, the Ottawa sports media referred to them by the colours' initials, "GG." A Gee-Gee is also the lead horse in a race.
**Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, many events are or will be cancelled or moved online. Please visit uOttawa.ca/events regularly for the latest updates.
