University Sports Office (Hochschulsport)
The universities have their own sport office, the Hochschulsportbüro located at Ulm University. It is open for all students of Ulm University, Ulm University of Applied Sciences and the University of Applied Sciences Neu-Ulm.
For almost every course you have to pay a small fee, if you want to participate in the sport programmes. Here are some examples of the offered sports: volleyball, swimming, paragliding, water skiing and so on.
Some of the highlights are the skiing trips to the French Alps (duration: one week) or the sailing club USCU where you can obtain the German sailing licence (compulsory on most of the lakes and seas). Moreover, members have free access to boats on the Ammersee.
For further information, please contact the Hochschulsportbüro. In addition, the University Sports Centre offers two well-equipped and cheap gyms called “UNIfit”, where you can train in an academic environment. “UNIfit” is located in O25, level 1, “UNIfit 2” is in Manfred-Börner-Straße 5, building C.
At the beginning of a semester the sports office issues a booklet and posters with the semester programme. The programme is also published on its webpage, where you can register and pay online for the courses.
