University Sports

At RheinMain University, students, teachers and other employees of the university can take advantage of comprehensive sports offerings.

Our goal is to provide an attractive and interesting range of various kinds of sports for all university members. Sports – from aerobic to hockey and yoga – allow participants to relax after a long day full of studies and work, to make new friends and to meet new challenges outside of classes and work assignments.

However, competitive sports, which is in fact quite prominent at our university, is also not being neglected. The university participates and hosts national championchips and tournaments. In addition leisure activities such as ski trips and canoe weekends are also offered.

Sport activities are offered in Wiesbaden and also in Rüsselsheim.

The sports program for the winter semester 2016/17 is now available under "Program A-Z". The printed brochure with all program information is available for free and is displayed in all libraries at the university locations.

The sports program of RheinMain University in cooperation with the College of Police and Management offers you a wide and attractive range of different sports. 144 classes per week and 66 sports offer you an inexpensive way to be active during your studies. You can participate in most ball sports and team sports for free! In addition to basketball, football, volleyball & Co. the university sports offers you other opportunities to try interesting sports. You can try out martial arts, e.g. Taekwondo, or attend one of the numerous health and fitness classes.

Besides classics like aerobics, belly legs buttom or Yoga new trend sports are represented in the sports program. Modern class formats such as Deep Work or Zumba already inspire students of the RheinMain University to be active for several semesters. However the university sports team is constantly working to further develop the sport program and expand the range of sports according to the students’ wishes. 

In addition to the weekly classes excursions, such as a 1-day bicycle tour or a one week ski trip, are offered by the university sports. 

The university sports program offers numerous possibilities of organized competitive sport for all performance-oriented athletes. Every year a variety of students of our university participates in German and international university championships. This semester the German University Cup in basketball and the German University Championships in women's football Kleinfeld will be held at RheinMain University. Moreover students will participate in national competitions in handball and volleyball.

If the sports program sounds interesting, there is only one thing to do: join our classes and let's start into an exciting and varied, perhaps sweaty, but especially "moved" semester.
