This campus mainly focuses on the Arts, including literature and language, and also has a library and student facilities, including halls of residence, shops and bars.

The University of Kemburg hosts several sports and activities. One of the most notable competitions that the University takes part in is the IWO Boat Race, a boat race between three of the most prominent Universities in the International Wikination Organisation. Its opponents are the Vrije Universiteit van Wikistad and the Royal University of Koningstad. The UOK's colour for the boat race is Green.

The University of Kemburg also hosts a football club, going by the name of UOK FC. The club currently plays in the Kemburger Second Division, where it is one of the more prominent teams, however until 2014 has not been eligible for promotion, due to the University's best wishes.

The UOK also owns many large sporting facilities, including the large Kemergy Arena, that has a seating capacity of 35,000 in total. The main reason for the large number of seats is because there are 3 pitches, the football pitch with 20,000 seats, the basketball pitch with 8,000 seats, and the Ice hockey arena with 7,000 seats.
