Special features regarding university sports

The university offers its own sports programme. The CSP programme is open to all university members and, in exceptional cases, to guests. There are various partnership agreements with other university sports facilities. For the GU university sports programme, a partnership (complete sports programme) exists as well as for excursions (here also JUL & RheinMain University of Applied Sciences (HSRM)). Some courses are free of charge, some subject to fees. Sport has a positive impact on physical and mental performance and connects people. That’s why CampusSport offers a variety of opportunities to find a balance to the often stressful everyday study routine on and off campus. Our university has committed itself to "lifelong learning". We at CampusSport support this holistic educational mission - be it in the wide range of courses, the diverse participants and instructors or the various modern sports venues on and off campus. CampusSport practises diversity!
