UM SPORTS is the sports facility of Maastricht University and part of the Student Services Centre (SSC). It organizes and facilitates the sports programme for students and employees of Maastricht University. The student sports associations (SSA’s) provide the atmosphere and team spirit which makes student sport so unique. UM SPORTS ensures that the SSA’s can concentrate on what is important by taking care of the prerequisites, like training facilities, material for the association and of course enthusiastic and qualified trainers.
UM SPORTS, the student sports associations and the Sports Council MUSST are inextricably linked. This symbiosis ensures that student sports in Maastricht is performed on a high level, that there is a diversified and reasonably priced programme and that doing sports in Maastricht is an experience which you can’t get anywhere else!
Next to financial, facility and personnel support for SSA’s, UM SPORTS also offers a broad sports program for individual athletes. For example, gym, spinning, group lessons, courses and sign up activities like modern dance or squash. The UM SPORTS membership Sports, which you need to become a member of a Student Sports Association provides access to a substantial part of the sports programme.
All members of a student sport association must be in the possession of a valid UM SPORTS membership.
