Go explore

The go explore section will provide you with loads of information about life in Maastricht. This section will help you find all the great things Maastricht has to offer. Once you are settled you might want to do more than just study. Therefore we offer information about many different things you can do in this beautiful town. We think it is fundamental that all the international students participate in activities and sports within the local community. Maastricht, as well as all the internationals, can only profit and grow with all the input and knowledge that moves here with all the internationals from different cultures and backgrounds all over the planet! So see if you can find an organization or a club you might like, go check them out, show them how you do things at home and learn how things are done here!

To help you find something that interests you we have following sections:

Sports: the sports section provides you with information about different sports clubs and teams here in Maastricht, where they practice or how you can contact them. It includes information about different fitness studios and many other things. And if you are not quite sure what might suit you, or where you might have the most fun, just answer a few questions in the “need help getting started” quiz and we will provide you with a selection of activities based on your answers. Make use of it and go explore!

Community: the community section provides you with information about many different clubs and organizations which are not sport-related. And just like the sport section, we have prepared a few questions for you to answer, should you not be sure what you might enjoy and like.

Events: Maastricht might not be the biggest of all places, but it still has a lot to offer! There are many different events, ranging from theater to movies, from parties to concerts, from art to lectures and much more. Whatever you may like, chances are you can find it here. So make sure to check out what events are coming up in our calendar. Or maybe you and your friends are planning an event and you want to make sure that a lot of people know about it? Just use the option to submit an event and we will publish it for you on our website!

Media: Maastricht has different local mediums, such as the Observant, a student driven newspaper, and other local organizations. In the media section we are collecting different articles and videos about life in Maastricht. So make sure you stay up to date and know about the latest news in Maastricht by checking out our media section. And, just like in the events section, we provide you with the option to submit articles, should you think that more people need to know about what the article describes.
