You might say the Dutch are crazy about sports. Almost two thirds of all Dutch adults do sports on a weekly basis and about one third of all adults are registered to one of over 35000 sports clubs in the Netherlands. To get active in the best way possible, international students in Maastricht can sign up to UM SPORTS, which forms a subdivision of the University. Being a member entitles you to join their group classes, trainings, activities, and group-workouts, which are all provided in English and Dutch! For those that prefer going to the gym themselves rather than taking part in group sports or activities, UM SPORTS provides a top-modern gym equipped with a variety of machines, free-weights, and other training equipment. Be sure to check out the different membership options before signing a membership contract, and check out all the activities UM SPORTS members can participate in.

If you are looking for a little more commitment and a great sporting experience, you can join in on sports and activities run by the various student sport associations, which are financially supported by the University. These official SSA’s give you the opportunity to play your favorite sports in teams, and proudly represent the University in different tournaments and competitions!

Should UM SPORTS not offer the activities you’re interested in you can always visit a local sports club and consider joining their team. Just note that although most members will probably be able to speak English to some extent, Dutch will be the primary language of communication. Maastricht Sport is an organization that works with local sports clubs – check this list to find out what sports are offered near you.

To make things easier for you we have attached a ‘price tag’ to each sport featured on our page. The sports that have the tag ‘UM SPORTS’ are free if you have a UM SPORTS subscription. Those tagged as ‘Student Sport Association’ require a UM SPORTS subscription plus a monthly or yearly membership fee, which will go to the association’s funding. The remaining sports tagged with ‘costs involved’ are activities offered by external partners, which require you to pay fees without UM being involved or contributing at any point.

Highlighting something on our website will trigger a pop-up so that you can share a certain part of our website to your Twitter or Facebook account. This may come in handy if someone else has specific question related to life in Maastricht or there’s a piece of information you want to share with your friends, followers or acquaintances.

If you need off-line help with filling out an application or finding specific information, you can turn to the International Service Desk (given that you are a student at UM). We collaborate closely and one of our colleagues will welcome you and assist you at the reception of the Student Services Center (SSC, located at Bonnefantenstraat 2, 6211KL, Maastricht) from Monday to Friday from 13.00 until 17.00. If you are not a student at UM step by the Holland Expat Centre South. They help every international in the Maastricht Region with all kind of issues.
