All students in Maastricht can sign up to UM SPORTS, which is the sports facility of the University. Being a member entitles you to join their group classes, activities, and group-workouts, which are all provided in English and Dutch! For those who prefer going to the gym, UM SPORTS has a big modern gym equipped with a variety of machines, free-weights, and other equipment. Look at the different membership options here and check out all the activities UM SPORTS members can participate in.

If you are looking for a little more commitment, you can join in on sports and activities run by the student sport associations. 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.

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. 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.
