As the only student union in Germany, the Hochschulwerk offers university sports for students at Witten/Herdecke University largely free of charge. Since university sports are financed by the students' social contributions, university sports are only available to our students free of charge.
In order to maintain the family character of our university, we offer university sports not only for our students, but also for teachers, staff and external students, provided that places are available. They make a small financial contribution, which can be found in the respective sport.
We also regularly support students at sporting events (marathons, dragon boat races, etc.). Anyone who would like to help out is, of course, very welcome.
We are always happy to receive suggestions for our programme, for example, if you would like to offer a course as a trainer yourself or if you are interested in a new sport that is not yet offered. We are also happy to receive ideas for new premises where we can hold our courses.
In order to be able to use the offer free of charge as a student, you must note the following:
- You have received a fixed place (not a waiting place) for the course via our sports portal (sport.hochschulwerk.de).
- The offer is valid during the lecture period.
- The offer is only valid for students enrolled at Witten/Herdecke University.
- You must have attended at least 60% of the course.
- For sports courses that take place in cooperation with a club, you will receive a pro-rata refund of the club fee for the current semester.
- Proof of reimbursement must be submitted by a certain date after the end of the lecture period, otherwise it will not be reimbursed. The deadlines for submitting the reimbursements will be announced approx. 14 days in advance.
Unfortunately, we cannot offer every type of sport ourselves. However, in order to meet all wishes as best we can, we cooperate with the RUB. Since the summer semester 2013, students of our university can use the complete range of sports on offer there, at the normal student prices. You can register for the courses via the website or in person at the service office in the SSC on the RUB campus. In the status you should then click on "Students of another university". The link to the website is: https://buchung.hochschulsport.ruhr-uni-bochum.de/angebote/aktueller_zeitraum/.
We also have cooperations with local clubs or providers in order to be able to offer as diverse a range of courses as possible. Students of our university can train in these clubs free of charge. Currently, these are rowing, volleyball and baseball/softball. If you are interested, just get in touch with us in the office.
