The 2015 Summer Universiade, the XXVIII Summer Universiade, was held in Gwangju, South Korea. The cities of Edmonton, Canada; Taipei, Taiwan; and Gwangju, South Korea were in contention for the Games. On May 23, 2009, FISU awarded the hosting rights to Gwangju. Gwangju was an unsuccessful bidder for the 2013 games. The gymnastics events were held at the Jinwol Sports Complex.

Format of Competition

The competition format was similar to that of the Olympics. All participating gymnasts, including those who were not part of a team, participated in a qualification round, which also served as the team final. Each team could only have three gymnasts perform on each apparatus, and all three scores counted toward the team total. The results of this competition determined which teams and individuals participated in the remaining competitions, which included:

  • The all-around competition, in which only the twenty-four highest scoring individuals in the all-around competed. Each country was limited to only two gymnasts in the all-around final.
  • The event finals, in which the eight highest scoring individuals on each apparatus competed. Each country was limited to two gymnasts in each apparatus final.
